The Crystal Maze

ESL EFL Listening and Speaking Activity - Elementary - 30 Minutes

Here is an entertaining game to help students practice giving directions. The students are divided into teams of three or four. Each team chooses one student to be their player. The players leave the room while the maze is being created. The desks are rearranged to resemble a maze with one entrance and one exit. If a maze of desks isn't possible, tasks are created for the players to perform to complete the maze, e.g. sit on a certain chair, open a certain book, touch a specific poster, etc. Once a maze has been created, the game begins with teams taking it in turns to play. The first team puts a blindfold on their player outside of the classroom and then brings them to the entrance of the maze. The aim of the game is for the teams to direct their player through the maze in the shortest possible time. When all the teams have played, new players are selected and the students rearrange the desks into a new maze or change the tasks the players have to perform. The team with the lowest score at the end of the game wins.
