Teacher’s instructions

Photocopy and cut out the sheet below so there are enough cards for at least 5 cards per student. Deal them out randomly, but so that each person in a pair has the same number of cards. They should look at all their cards, but keep them secret from their partner.

Student A must ask Student B a question so that Student B give the response on one of Student A’s cards, e.g.

Student A: “How often do you wash your face”

Student B: “Once a week”

Student A: (puts card saying “Once a week“ face up on the table) “I score one point! Now it’s your turn”


Student A: (doesn’t have the card “Once a week” in his or her hand, so can’t place any cards down) “Really? I don’t have that card. Now it’s your turn”

The first person with no cards left in their hand or the person with least cards left when the teacher stops the game is the winner.
