Activity Use:


Pupil Task:

Group Work

Which learning institute:



• pre-prepared board game templates as in worksheet 1. make enough to have one for each group of four to five pupils. • pre-prepared dice as in worksheet 2. one per group. • one question card for each pupil as in worksheet 3. • one item for each pupil which they can use as a counter eg. an eraser, a coin or a pen top. • glue, cardboard and scissors. laminating films if available.

Procedure before class:

1.       Laminate the Board Game templates.
2.       Stick the dice onto cardboard and assemble the dice.
3.       Cut up the question cards worksheet.


Procedure in class:

1.       Elicit some simple questions from the pupils, for example: Do you like chocolate? Where do you live? What is your favourite food? These questions can relate to any area of previous study.
2.       Hand out the blank question cards and ask pupils to think of a question and write it on the back of the card.
3.       Put the pupils into groups of four or five and give out one board game template and one dice to each group.
4.       Ask them to put the question cards in the centre of the board and their counter on the ‘Start’ square.
5.       Explain/demonstrate the rules of the game to the pupils. Pupils should take it in turns to throw the dice and move around the board. When they land on a question mark, one person in the group takes a question card and reads it to the player who must answer correctly. Make sure pupils understand ‘Miss a turn’ and ‘Back to start’. Remind pupils to count in English when moving around the board.
6.       While the pupils are playing the game, monitor their use of English and their ability to ask and answer questions.
7.       When they have asked and answered all the questions on their board, they can swap questions with another group.




Instead of using questions, pupils could write instruction cards such as ‘Put your hand on your head’ or ask pupils to make it more challenging such as ‘Put your left hand on your right ear’.


During the game, teacher should monitor the activity and guide any pupil who is finding it difficult to ask or answer questions.
