It's in the bag!

author:  Katie Dwyer
Level:  Elementary / Junior High
target_english:  Questions.

This is a variation of the lines game and one of the games posted recently. I use it for 2nd and 3rd graders at Junior High  but it could be adapted to Senior High or 6th grade Elementary school levels.



I pass out strips of paper and ask them to write out any question on it. If some students have problems I put some  hints on the board e.g; What, where, how etc. After a few minutes i go around and get the students to fold it up and put the questions in a bag, (I like using supermarket bags, the students like to know where you shop!).

Then I choose a line to stand and play the line game.
You can play this two ways, either you can ask the questions yourself or my favorite.... ask the students who are not standing to pick a bit of paper from the bag and ask the question themselves.
The last person standing ' The Lucky person' gets to pull a question from the bag and ask one of the teachers! They really like this one!
It's great practice for all four skills and I have found it a great way to start lessons. The best part is they are generating the questions. Enjoy!
