Ouestioning the Teacher

Home Main Submit Contents Recipes

Students are always curious about their teachers and each other, so this can be played in pairs or between class and the teacher. It is a good icebreaker both for children and adults and helps students to speak.

The T (teacher) writes some words related with himself/herself on the board (age, shoe size, best friend name, school name, etc) and the students try to find what they are by asking yes/no questions. The student(s) who finds it can ask more detailed questions about that item in order to talk and get more information or can get a small candy as a reward. This can be done in various ways as the ss can question the teacher as a whole class or they can work in pairs, and after learning some about each other they can introduce/tell about their pairs to the whole class. An example is :
27 6
Burcak Kemal
7 Ankara

S: Is 27 your door number?
T: No
S2: Is 27 your age?
T: Yes
S2: When is your birthday?...
