You need to know exactly how many people there are in the group. Divide cards into two horizontal parts. In the upper area write a question to which your students probably know the answer. It could be something from a story they know or general knowledge. In the lower half, write an answer, but not the answer to that question! It will be the answer to a question on another card. In then end, all the questions on the cards should have an answer on another card.
|What’s the capital of Australia?|
|The Thames runs through London.|
|What is Bob Dylan’s real name?|
|Canberra is the capital of Australia|
Sit the group in a circle and give out the cards telling them not to show them to anyone. The first person then asks his/her question of the person to their left. If that person has the answer, he/she can answer, if not the response should be something like, “I’m sorry, I don’t know, I’ll ask him/her.” The question then gets passed on until someone has the answer! As the question is repeated several times, you are doing a light kind of drill on question forms and also reinforcing the use of will for instance decisions.
You can also use prompts for the questions rather than full form questions: eg. Bob Dylan / real name? This is more challenging and so more interesting but do whatever your group can manage.
During you preparation, try not to design the cards’ q and a in pairs even though it may seem easier to plan, the drawback is that the game becomes predictable; you have my answer and I have yours, threes works OK. Creating these using Word tables makes life easy.
