____ to reason

I go to school to study English.


This may take some explaining.

Put the students in groups and give them a worksheet each. You will need to prepare a set of cards for each group too.

Students Janken and the winner goes first and draws a card. The winner (A) asks the person to their left (B) and goes through this dialogue:

A: Do you go to (read the card)?
B: Yes, I do.
A: Why?
B: I go to (card) to (student thinks of a reason).

The student B gets the points on the card and gets to move that many around the board.

Play passes to the next student.

Extra rules/explanation

Instead of the next student to the left, they can use a dice and use that to pick a random (B) student.

The reason that B gets the points is to positively re-enforce being chosen to participate.

Instead of using a counter have the winner sign the finishing position.

The reason they each work from their own paper is so they have a take-away from the activity.

    Hi, Andy.
    A small detail. It should probably be “Landmark Tower”, not “Lankmark Tower”.
    P.S. And of course thank you for the great activities and ideas.

      Hahaha… thanks. You are totally correct.
      LanKmark doesnt sound quite as nice. I’ll update the cards next time i do a bulk update.
      Cheers Alex.
