Do your students need to revisit prepositions of place? Here we go: The Green Rhino Video and Song!

You may try any or several of these activities:

1. Play the video for students. Then play it again without sound. Pause at each slide and say, “Where’s Green Rhino?” Students can reply in writing or by speaking.

2. After watching, give students a gap-fill with the prepositions missing (see below).  They will fill in as many as they can remember.  Then play the video again, and give the students another chance.  Play the video until they have all the gaps filled in.

3. Fast preposition cards!  Get students 12 blank cards or pieces of paper.  Then dictate the following words.  They will write one on each card.

ON

IN BY UNDER

UNDERNEATH

AMONG NEAR

BEHIND

ABOVE NEXT TO AGAINST

IN FRONT OF

 

4. Next, you’ll play the song.  Students will have the cards on their desks in front of them.  For each line of the song, they will grab the corresponding word and hold it up.  This is fast and furious fun!

Follow-Up: The Selfie Challenge

As homework, have your students make 5 similar photos of themselves using their cellphones.  The next day in class, they will do a mingle, walking around the room, and showing others their photos.  The person to whom they show the photo must form a sentence.  For examples, “You are behind a car.”  “You are under a bridge.”  Alternatively, students can photograph a  paper cut-out like our Green Rhino or a  stuffed animal.

“Green Rhino” Song

Green Rhino _____ the map

Green Rhino _____ my lap

Green Rhino _____ the stool

Green Rhino _____ the pool

Green Rhino _____ the bougainvile

Green Rhino _____ a tortilla

Green Rhino _____ a hole

Green Rhino _____ a bowl

Green Rhino _____ the rocks

Green Rhino _____ to the socks

Green Rhino _____ the broom

Green Rhino _____ a blue balloon

Green Rhino _____ a shoe

Green Rhino _____ a screw

Green Rhino _____ a pile of rice

Green Rhino _____ a bag of ice

Green Rhino _____ the fridge

Green Rhino _____ the Golden Gate Bridge

Green Rhino _____ the grass

Green Rhino _____ a sideways glass

Green Rhino _____ my nose

Green Rhino _____ two avocados

Green Rhino _____ your toes

Green Rhino _____ the teas

Green Rhino _____ the DVDs

Green Rhino _____ the can of peas

Green Rhino _____ the stairs

Green Rhino _____ a reclining chair

Green Rhino _____ the air

Green Rhino a _____ the sky

Green Rhino _____ the ties

Green Rhino _____ my eyes.

Green Rhino on the map

Green Rhino in my lap

Green Rhino under the stool

Green Rhino by the pool

Green Rhino in the bougainvila

Green Rhino underneath a tortilla

Green Rhino in a hole

Green Rhino in a bowl

Green Rhino among the rocks

Green Rhino next to the socks

Green Rhino behind the broom

Green Rhino under a blue balloon

Green Rhino above a shoe

Green Rhino next to a screw

Green Rhino in a pile of rice

Green Rhino near a bag of ice

Green Rhino in the fridge

Green Rhino above the Golden Gate Bridge

Green Rhino in the grass

Green Rhino in a sideways glass

Green Rhino on my nose

Green Rhino between two avocados

Green Rhino between your toes

Green Rhino underneath the teas

Green Rhino on the DVDs

Green Rhino behind the can of peas

Green Rhino on the stairs

Green Rhino in a reclining chair

Green Rhino in the air

Green Rhino against the sky

Green Rhino in front of the ties

Green Rhino between my eyes.
