1B Ask me some questions…
A group board game
Sts practise making questions using the present simple tense. Make one copy for every three or four Sts. You will
also need one dice per group, and one counter per student.
What does your mother look like?
What do you do to relax?, etc.
• Put Sts in groups of three or four. Give each group a copy of the board game, a dice, and some counters.
Demonstrate the activity by writing on the board WHAT
TIME / YOU GET UP? WHERE / YOUR MOTHER WORK? Elicit the completed questions and write do and does in the missing space. Ask a few Sts the questions.
• In their groups, Sts take turns to roll the dice and move the counter. They then ask the questions to the student on their right.
• Encourage Sts to ask for and give as much information as possible.
• When Sts have finished, get some feedback from various groups.
EXTRA IDEA If you want to make it longer, Sts can play with coins (heads = move 1 square, tails = move 2).
