Verb Picture Bingo
Cut out the bingo cards. Cut out the words and place in a cup. Give a bingo card to each student. Take a word out of the cup one at a time and say the word out loud.

One Foot in the Grave Lesson Plans
For the BBC TV series "One Foot in the Grave." More apt for upper intermediate students. Here are some question sheets for all episodes, bar one, of series 2 plus the first episode of series 3.
