Find Someone Who...

ESL Halloween Activity - Reading, Writing, Listening and Speaking Activity - Pre-intermediate (A2) - 30 minutes

In this engaging Halloween activity, students ask and answer questions about Halloween. Give each student a copy of the worksheet. Go through the items on the worksheet and elicit the yes/no questions the students need to ask for the activity, e.g. 'Did you go to a Halloween party last year?' Also, go over possible follow-up 'Wh' questions the students can ask to find out more information. The students then go around the class asking the yes/no questions to one another. When a student finds someone who answers 'yes' to a question, they write down that person's name in the corresponding column next to the item. The student then asks a follow-up question to gain more information and notes down the answer in the last column. When everyone has finished, the students give feedback to the rest of the class on what they found out.
