Guess Who - Are you, can you, do you?

A quick 'Guess Who' activity using 'are you...?', 'can you...?' and 'do you...?'. Perfect for reviewing this grammar for 1st Grade JHS.

Thank you for oceanwave for their 'Guess Who Level Up' Activity and rebvandev for their original 'Guess Who' Activity!


  • Print a copy for every student (I have also added a word file so you can edit the document if you like).
  • Hand out a worksheet to each student.
  • Make sure to do the activity with the JTE as an example.


  • Get into pairs. Each person will choose one of the characters on their sheet, but won't say it out loud.
  • Then the pair plays janken, the winner will ask the first question and their partner will answer.
  • Then it's the partners turn to ask a question.
  • They keep asking questions, trying to figure out who their partner chose.
  • Once one person thinks they know, they are 'Are you ______?'.
  • The first person to guess correctly wins!
  • Have them play for around 5 minutes. If they finish a game, they can start another one.

      Thank you for this activity! I used it in my classes. My students are shy, so they practiced in groups first. After everyone had a chance to go (~10 min) they stood up and walked around the room, practicing with anyone in pairs. The students had a blast and the JTE was impressed that it used all 3 grammar points. It's great!
