Criss Cross

Learners must be seated in organized rows at least 4×4.

 

Have the front row of learners stand. Ask simple questions like “What day/time is it?”

 

 Learners raise their hands (or blurt out answers) and the first person to answer correctly may sit down. The last standing learner’s line (front-to-back) must stand and the game continues until 3-4 rows/lines have played.

 

You can use diagonal rows if the same person gets stuck standing each time. To end, ask a really simple question (e.g. “What’s your name?”) directly to the last student standing. Variation for small group: the whole group stands and may sit one by one as they raise their hands and answer questions.
