List of questions


To get to know everyone.


Partner up - a group of three will work fine also if you need to make one. Ask the students to formally introduce themselves to their partner. Now, ask the students a question from the question sheets. The pairs have 30 seconds total to share their answers with each other. After 30 seconds, call 'change.' Each student has to find a different partner. Repeat the process. Continue the activity as long as the energy is good.
