Guess the Question
Here’s a good student-led activity to build into your routines which gets students asking questions. On a piece of paper, write a question – with my class of ten-year-olds I’m using simple questions such as What’s your favourite sport? What’s the weather like? How old are you? Have you got a pet?
Nominate a student to come to the front and give them the piece of paper. Other students then have to ask him questions, which he answers, until they guess the question. Nominate a different student each week, that way everyone gets to practise answering the questions too.
