BRIEF OUTLINE: Students ask the ALT questions using 'did' questions: "Did you eat breakfast yesterday?" Points are recieved for 'yes' responses.

  

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

    1. After breaking the class into groups, students are given about 5-10 minutes to come up with questions for the ALT using the word 'did'.
    2. If the ALT answers "yes", the group receives one point and the group has the chance to ask another question. If the ALT says "no", the group's turn is over and it's the next group's turn.
    3. The group with the most points accumulated in 10-15 minutes wins.
     

VARIATIONS:

  • Instead of allowing a group to keep asking questions if they receive a 'yes' answer, only allow one question from a group before it's the next group's turn.
  •  

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • This game is great. Kids are super innovative in using English to produce a 'yes' response: Did you go to toilet yesterday? It's a definite example of real and natural usage of English.  It doesn't feel contrived at all.
