Once you have explained how to make questions you can play a kind of question chain. That is, you start asking
something like "what's this?" Next person answers "It's a scarf". Again next
person makes a question with the word
scarf and the other one answers and so on. After several questions you ask
them "What's the relationship between the scarf and the last word and they have
to remember all questions and answers and tell the story. For example: "This is
a scarf which is made of wool that comes from sheep which are farm animals like
cows that provide you with milk...
I have the students asking each other questions. I have created two worksheets of information about 4
people, but with lots of games. The students works in pairs to ask questions to
fill in the gaps. The information includes date of birth (past simple), job
(present tense) and ambitions (future). A useful tool to see the revision
necessary. It's also possible to create this type of document to get to know the students.
Put your students into pairs. Give each pair lots of small pieces of paper. Divide the board into three
columns and give each column a heading, depending on what you want to practise,
for example: "Present simple" "Present continuous" "Present perfect" Tell them
that they have 10 minutes to make as many grammatically correct questions as
possible for each of the three tenses. One student from each pair is the writer
and the other is the runner. The writer writes a question on one of the bits of
paper. The runner comes to the board and sticks the piece of paper in the
correct column. (you'll need some blue tac!) After 10 mins stop them and take
each question from the board (make sure they've written their names or a team
name on the bits of paper). Get feedback as you read the question out and give
one point to the pair for a correct question. The pair with the most correct questions wins!!
