The teacher prepares -ADHESIVE TYPEWRITER ADDRESS LABELS ( which can be purchased in rolls to stick on the backs of all the students in the class.) or Post It Notes.
Each label contains a real person’s name or the name of a character from fiction or television cartoons. Each named person should have a natural partner, for example if you write a label with the name ROMEO, there should also be a label with the name JULIET stuck on somebody’s back. If you have an odd number of students in your class, stick a label on your own back, but let the students do the questioning.
Questions must be of the type that can either be answered with YES or No:
Am I man or a woman? Alive or dead? European or American? Real or fictitious?
Am I a character from a cartoon or a book? Am I rich? Am I famous?
Have I been in the news recently? Am I someone from your country? Britain?
Do I work in sport / music / entertainment / the cinema / the theatre?
Students ask questions to find their partner……..when they think they’ve found their partner, they sit down together.
