THE QUESTION CUBE
This is one of my all time favorites. It can be altered to suit beginner, intermediate, or advanced students. If you have a large class, split them into smaller groups and use multiple cubes. Please see instructions below:
Materials: Paper Cube, Marker, Glue, Tape
Go to http://ebookbrowse.com/paper-cube-templ ... d102521457
for instructions on how to construct the cube.
Once the cube is constructed, use a marker to write one word on each side. For example: What, When, How, etc. You can make the cube as easy or difficult as you like depending on your students. You can use nouns, adverbs, adjectives, etc.
Demonstrate by throwing, tossing, or rolling the cube. The word that lands face up must be used to ask a question. How are you? How is the weather? How old are you? The students can take turns. You give points, prizes, etc. to make the game more competitive, based on accuracy, intonation, etc.
