I found this activity hidden in one of my idea notebooks a few minutes ago while trying to organize my files.
Ask students to write a question on a piece of paper.
Tell them to fold it down and pass it to the next student.
The next students will also write a question and fold the paper and pass it to the next student.
This will continue until the students get their own papers.
Then tell students to choose
1. a funny question
2. the question they’d like to answer
3. a question they can’t answer
4 . a question with a a grammar mistake, etc
Then they can answer the questions they want to answer.
They can create a wall poster titled “Our Questions and Answers’
I also think this can be a great idea as pre (reading, listening,writing, speaking,etc)
Write the topic on the board
Tell students to write a question on that topic and pass the paper to the next students
When they get their own papers tell them to check the text if they can get an answer for any of the questions on the paper.
If you have access to a computer room, before reading the text in the course book, students can search the web and try to get answers for their questions.
