The next picture will be a girl eating pizza followed by a pizza picture then pictures of the ingredients of pizza.

I will pre-teach vocabulary ( dish , shrimps, though and mouth-watering) see language analysis I will ask students to draw their favorite dish on a white paper individually. I will ask ICQs : are you going to work alone or in pairs? Are you going to write or draw? Are you going to draw your friends and family or your favorite restaurant dish? After 3 minutes, I will regroup the class and every student will get a new neighbor. Students will exchange their papers and each one of them should guess what is their partner’s favorite dish is.
