LENGTH: 5-10 minutes
TOPIC: guess the picture on the card
The popular game GUESS WHAT? with headbands is an old star among ESL speaking games. You can buy a ready-to-go game like this one or you can make one from scratch by simply using some elastics and cards according to the level your students are on or the topic you would like to practice.
Students work in groups, everybody in the group gets a headband and a card that is held by the headband in a way that everybody in the group sees it except the one wearing it. Then you have several options:
Students in the group take turns and give little hints to the person wearing the card, trying to help them guess what is on their card.
A slightly more difficult (and more time-consuming) approach is to let the person wearing the card ask questions while their teammates can respond with only YES or NO.
