Description

  1. Students make groups. Each group gets a piece of paper.
  2. You give the students a question. (See tips.) (See examples below.)
  3. Groups think up their answers and write it on the paper.
  4. Two or three students come up and share their group's answer.
  5. Everyone in the audience claps to show if they agree. (See tips.)

Some examples of questions:

  • What is the best AKB48 song?
  • What club is the hardest?
  • Who is the funniest teacher?

Tips

  • When you give each question, tell the students a few times so they have a chance to listen, and then eventually write it up on the board.
  • Make sure everyone claps for each opinion, just to keep it active. Quiet clap for disagree, loud for complete "Me too!!" agreement.
