Time: 20-30 minutes

Materials Needed:

  1. paper for students to write their responses


Day 1 - the teacher writes some questions on the board for the students to answer. Students can choose 3 questions and write the answers on three slips of paper. Students are required to give a full answer (I usually read a book at 7 p.m.). The teacher collects the answers and checks them for any mistakes.


  • What do you usually do at 7 p.m.?
  • What is your favorite movie/TV show?
  • What is your telephone number?
  • What is your street number/name of your street?
  • How many sisters/brothers do you have?
  • When is your birthday?
  • What do you like cooking?
  • Where did you go last summer?
  • How do you usually get to school?
  • Who is your father? (What is your father's name?)

Day 2 - each student receives 3 slips of paper written by other students. Now students have to go around the room and find those who wrote those answers. They have to ask questions: Do you have three brothers?
