In this rewarding object pronouns activity, students ask questions about preferences and reply using object pronouns. The aim of the activity is to find someone who has all the same preferences. Give each student a preference card. The students then stand up and ask a classmate a question with 'like' in order to find the person who has the same preferences as them, e.g. 'Do you like Thai food?' Their classmate looks at the preferences on their card and answers using an appropriate object pronoun, e.g. 'No, I don't like it'. If a classmate responds with the same preference as the student asking the question (e.g. 'Yes, I love it'), the two students take it in turns to ask questions to see if all their preferences are the same. If so, the two students sit down together. If not, the students move on to speak to someone else. When all the students have found a partner, they give feedback on what preferences they have in common with their partner according to their cards.
