I’ve just found more another optical illusion powerpoint on my hard drive.

I don’t know where it came from or who made it, or how I got it.

It’s an old favourite and perfect for a warmer, filler or just for when you have nothing else.

To get the most out of it

  1. Put students in pairs
  2. Have them discuss each one for a couple of minutes
  3. Ask for feedback.

You don’t have to do this for each one, but it will allow students to speak and produce more English.

If it was useful, please pass it on.

Optical illusions are a great warmer, cooler or filler for your class. Here’s a powerpoint show that I made from pictures I found on Google. It takes five to ten minutes depending on how chatty your students are

I ask students to look at each picture and answer three questions.
1. What is the first picture you notice?
2. What is the second picture you notice?
3. Do you like this picture?
