What do you need?

  • A ball
  • A list of questions

How does it work?
The students form a circle and you as a teacher will take place in the middle. You can also instruct a student to take the position in the center of the circle if you don't want to join in.

Teacher or a student: What are you having for dinner tonight? (throws the ball to a student)
Student: I’m having vegetables with potatoes (throws the ball back to the teacher or the student).
This will continue until one of the students takes longer than 5 seconds to come up with a right answer. If this happens the student who had to answer the question takes the position in the center and the person who was in there before can join the circle.

What else do I need to know?
Prepare some question before you start this lesson. If one of the students does not come up with a question you can help him by making one up for him.

What is the purpose of this activity? 
This game enhances the reactive power of the students and teaches them to answer questions right and quickly in English.
