Describing Everyday Objects: Speaking Activity

(TESOL Worksheets--Speaking)
Google: Drive, Docs, Pub
[This was designed to supplement page 57 of the Life Pre-Intermediate textbook, but I think it can also stand on its own as an independent speaking activity, so I'm posting it here.
The activity has two phases.  In the first phase, the students are put into groups of three.  The names of object cards are spread out on the desks. One student reads the description card, and the other two students compete to grab the appropriate object card.
Then, the students are given blank cards, and they write their own description of everyday objects.  They read these descriptions to their group, and the group tried to guess their objects.]
