Spring 20 questions games - No prep speaking, listening and describing activities
3 versions of the game are included for a total of 156 vocabulary words.
Have students work in pairs, small groups of 2-4, or project the version of the game that you want to use and do a whole class activity.
Each version includes 52 spring themed words. This resource includes a total of 156 words. Many of the words will likely be new to your students as this game is meant not only to practice speaking and listening, but also to build vocabulary. I like to allow my students to look at the game chart while they play until they’re somewhat familiar with the words.
One student in the small group or class chooses a word on the chart. Other students ask up to 20 questions trying to guess the secret word.
Are you an object?
Are you a living thing?
Are you outside?
Do you smell good?
Are you an animal?
The student who has chosen the secret word can answer using the following responses: YES - NO - SOMETIMES - RARELY - USUALLY - MAYBE - IT DEPENDS - PROBABLY
Alternative game play:
To change up the game and to make it more challenging as well as practicing other skills, have the student who chooses the secret word describe it to others in the group. Instead of asking questions about the secret word, other students listen to the description and guess it.
