Tell students that we are going to play a board game, but first they need to fill out a worksheet in order to play the game.

Have students fill out their answers to the questions on the worksheet and help the students who have a difficult time forming opinions. (If you want to, you can do each question together as a class)

Do a demo with your JTE.

Have students make groups and jan-ken after they have finished the worksheet. The winner rolls the dice and goes that number of spaces. The spot that they land on will determine what question on their worksheet they will ask to somebody in their group or to a teacher.

  • Q1(2,3,4,5,6) = Ask that numbered question to anybody in your group and have them answer.
  • Q1(2,3,4,5,6) to boy (girl) = Ask that numbered question to the appropriate gendered student in their group and have them answer. (If there isn't a girl or boy in a group, go to a different group and ask the queston to somebody)
  • Q1(2,3,4,5,6) to teacher = Ask the appropriate question to a teacher and have them answer.
  • Go back to start and go back 1,2,3 spots are what they are.


  • Make a worksheet with different questions that fit your grammar point.


  • Some students have trouble making opinions, so help them along.
  • Change the questions however you want.
