Divide Ss into pairs A and B and give out the sheets. Tell Ss they mustn`t look at each other`s pictures. If possible get them to sit face to face. Ss describe their pictures to each other and find several differences (there are 14 altogether). Demonstrate how to find differences by playing the parts of both A and B. For example, A: `In my picture, there`s a man and a woman. They`re running.` B: `In my picture, they`re not running.` In pairs Ss work together and try to find the differences.
