Estimated time: 30+ minutes
I wrote out a lot but trust me it's simpler than it seems AND the kids were so amused that they played this the whole lesson!
Monitor to display the vocabulary (or you can just print out copies)
Guess Who! character set printouts for each student
Dry-erase markers (optional but optimal)
I printed the sets of Guess Who! characters (attached below), cut them, and laminated them. You can get away with not laminating and just having extra copies. But by laminating the cards, you can reuse them. I.e. students make markings with dry-erase markers.
1. Review / practice vocabulary together using the slide provided (attached).
I went through each term with a full question to practice pronounciation. I.e. "Do you have glasses?" - students repeat after me. "Do you have a hat?" - students repeat after me. And so on.
2. Students make pairs
3. Hand out a laminated Guess Who! character card and a dry-erase marker to each student
4. Students circle who they are & keep it secret
5. Janken to see who goes first
Players take turns asking a question to deduce which character the other player is. For example, "Do you have blonde hair?" If they answer "No, I don't" then the first player can cross off any blonde characters. They can use their turn to guess who the other person is - "Are you Anne?" First player to guess correctly wins.
