Tic-Tac-Toe Tags

ESL EFL Listening and Speaking Activity - Intermediate - 40 Minutes

This fun class game can be used to teach or review tag questions and short answers. A four by five grid is drawn on the board. The squares are numbered and a question tag is written into each square. The class is then divided into four teams. Teams take it in turns to choose a question tag from the grid. The students in the team use the tag in the square to make a tag question. The team then asks the tag question to the next team. To win the square, the tag question must be grammatically correct and contain a minimum of six words. The next team must answer the question appropriately or they lose their turn to choose a square. If a tag question is grammatically incorrect or less than six words in length, play passes to the next team, without them having to answer a question. The aim of the game is for the teams to get three squares in a row, either horizontally, vertically or diagonally. The first team to do this wins the game.
