SPORTS PHRASAL VERBS

First, students need to read a short story. It contains sports phrasal verbs and students’ task is to match them to their meanings given. In this worksheet, we want to teach students the following phrasal verbs: warm up, give up, take up, drop out, keep up with, take part in, work out and knock out. To practise these verbs, students move to another exercise. This time, they complete the questions with the correct forms of some phrasal verbs. Then, they work in pairs, and ask and answer the questions.

FUN PART – STORIES

The last task is telling stories using the phrasal verbs from the worksheet. Give your students cards to complete. Then, they need to exchange them with their partners and tell the stories on the basis of the information they get on the cards. Stories don’t have to make sense or be super logical; the idea is to have fun and use the the phrasal verbs 😊
