20 Questions is an easy activity to get your class talking. Whether young or old, beginner or advanced, 20 Questions can work for every class.
The idea of the game is students must ask yes/no questions about something the teacher thinks about, a flashcard, or an object.
For example, the teacher has a flashcard with a doctor on it. The students can't see the flashcard.
Now, the students ask the teacher a question one by one to try and guess the object.
Example: Teacher, Can you eat it? NO
Teacher, is it a person? YES
Teacher, is it a fire fighter? NO
The students only have 20 questions altogether to guess the answer. After 20 questions, the round ends. Then play another round.
Variation: Another way to play is to have a student answer the questions, and not the teacher. This allows one student to listen and repond to the classmates.
--for higher level students, push them to ask more advanced or difficult questions. Example: "Can the person help society?" etc.
