Time: 30-40 minutes

and a dice/coin. Students place their counters,
e.g. badges on the START square. Explain the rules
of the game:

move their counters by the number of squares
indicated by the dice. If they use a coin, they
lip it and move one square for heads and two
for tails.
• Students must ask the question listed on the
square they have landed on to a team member
of their choice.
• This person’s answer must be at least 20
seconds long or he/she will miss the next
• Students can expand their answers by adding
details such as where something happened and
why, or they can justify their opinions.
• The irst player to reach the FINISH square wins
the game.
5. Play a trial round with a strong group to make
sure everybody understands the rules. Groups
then play the game without your help. Monitor
the task to make sure students speak English.
