ESL Giving Answers Game - Listening and Speaking - Young Learners - 10 minutes
Here is a quick and easy ESL game to motivate your students to answer questions. This game can be used in any situation where the students have to answer questions in class, e.g. answering exercise questions. Take a small object such as an eraser. Hand the object to a student and then turn around facing away from the class. Tell the students to pass the object around. After a few seconds have passed, shout 'Stop!' The student holding the object at that time must then answer a question set by you. If the student answers the question successfully, he or she scores a point. If not, the game continues. You turn back around and the object continues to be passed around until you say 'stop' again. This process continues until all the questions have been answered. The student with the most points at the end of the game wins.
