One great recipe is to play a video with vocabulary content. Not flashcards but something real and beautiful. Then, students either write or speak or brainstorm all the vocabulary from the video in the specific category you mention.
An example is the video Forgotten. Play and get students to list all the places in the house. Then play again, pausing and eliciting the parts of the house.
Another video is The chocolate man. Do the same but ask students to list the places the Chocolate man visits.
