Here are 5 trap door games which are related to 4 different topics: Media, TV, Friends, Holiday and Pocket Money. This activity can take up to 10 minutes and promotes spontaneous speaking and listening.
Pupils hide their sheet from their partner and mark 1 of the 3 options for each trap door. Pupils take it in turns to read from the start of the passage. The aim of the game is to get to the end of the passage. They imagine that, where there are multiple choice options in the sentence, this is a trap door. In order to past the trap door, they have to guess what their partner has chosen. They should mark if they get it right as they have to start from the beginning each time. When there is an opportunity to guess, afterwards pupils start from the beginning.
