As a Seated Activity
Have your students seated in pairs or in groups of three.
Lay the sixteen cut-up questions – face-down – between the students.
Students take turns randomly selecting questions to ask their partner(s).
Encourage follow-up questions.
Be sure to set a time frame for your students (try starting with 10 – 15 minutes
for 16 questions; you may want to adjust this in later classes). Monitor and assist.

As a Standing Activity 1
Have all your students stand up.
Give one question strip to each student.
Students find a partner and ask their question. Encourage follow-up questions.
After the students have asked each other their questions, have them exchange question strips and find new partners and continue.
Set a time frame as above. Monitor and assist.

As a Standing Activity 2
This activity runs exactly the same as in ‘Standing Activity 1’ except that students first have about a minute to memorize their question (before placing it in their pocket – it can be used as a prompt if needed).
After each short conversation, students ‘mentally exchange’ their questions – they must help each other memorize their new questions before setting of to find a new partner.
This activity version is a little challenging, but also lots of fun – and it’s great to see all the learning that takes place!
Set a time frame as above. Monitor and assist.
