Starter of the week

24 Mar


A quick activity to encourage focus and interest right at the start of the session. Students enjoy this simple game and it can be adapted by using different people according to the audience or topic. This starter encourages speaking and listening in addition to teamwork.

The Word document attached contains boxes with names of famous people. Print it off and give each student a name card each then ask them to either describe the person on their card to the class for them to guess or get the class to ask questions where the holder can only answer yes or no until someone guesses who it is.

Have fun!
