"Who am Ih game.

Great for ESL or TEFL teachers! I believe I got this idea from a great teacher, Dave Engler. Just thought I would share it on the internet. Enjoy!

Objectives:
1. Using the present tense, students will ask simple questions in the target language.
2. Students will answer verbally simple question in the target language using the present tense.

Procedure:
1. Ask the class to work in pairs. If possible, students should turn their desks to face another.
2. Next, give one member of each pair a full copy of worksheet #1 (below).
3. Explain to the class the following.

You were walking down the street awhile ago when you had a little accident. Before you knew it, you are on the ground and you do not remember what happened. The next thing you know, someone is standing over you asking you if you are OK. The person standing over you explains to you that you must have tripped and hit your head pretty hard. Since you can not remember how you ended up on the ground, this personfs explanation seems pretty good. So you stand up and start talking. You want to introduce yourself to this stranger who looks sort of familiar, but you can not remember your name. You tell this person that you can not remember your name and they laugh because they know you from somewhere but can not remember who you are either. So, they decide to ask you a few questions to try to help them remember who you are.

4. Explain that the students holding the worksheets are the good Samaritan. The students without the paper are the persons who had an accident.
5. Next, hand the students who do not have the worksheet the following. Take worksheet #1 and cut it into 16 pieces so that one gpersonh is now on each small sheet. However, be sure to also cut off the name of the person. This wayAstudents will be less likely to cheat. The remainder, which should only have clues on it, should be handed to the student.
6. Using the process of elimination, the helper student should ask the student who had an accident as many questions as it take to figure out who the person is. When they think they have a correct answer, have the students compare the two pieces of paper. The clues on the small sheet of paper should match the person who the helper thinks the other student is.
7. Once the students finish, give them a new clue sheet and have the students switch roles.

Worksheet #1 (I hope this copies to the site well, if not, sorry! I will not know untill it is posted, and then it may be too late!)
