American Sign Language (ASL) Ancillary Activities and OER Materials
To begin, students will practice their fingerspelling skills by making a short story as a group. In the main activity, they will play a game while learning about physical descriptions and additional information about a person. Students will get to ask each other questions while assuming a secret identity as a spy.
To begin the activity, students will challenge themselves by testing their knowledge of handshapes. They will test how many signs they know that use the same handshape. The main activity includes agreeing or disagreeing to questions and explaining why you answered that way.
“Country Game- Online Activity”
Students will work in a small group to discuss a variety of topics through the lens of comparing different countries. These discussions will be facilitated through a board game, and ASL vocabulary will be embedded.
