This is my version of the classic “Find someone who…” speaking and ice-breaking activity designed for teenagers for the first class after the summer holidays. I’ve also added a version for adults.
Download the handout here:
Find someone who – teenagers
Warmer – Guess my holiday
Students get 20 questions to guess where the teacher went on holiday.
Allow students to ask you more questions to find out some information about the holiday.
Project the handout onto the board. Students must circulate, speaking to all their classmates until they have found someone who did all of the listed activities during the summer holidays. When they find someone who has done one of the activities they must also ask them for some details and record them in the details column.
Before starting model past simple yes/no questions on the board:
Went to another continent:
Did you go to another continent?
Also model questions for details:
Where did you go?
What did you do there?
What did you eat?
The winner is the first person to find someone people who have done each of the things on the list or prove that nobody has done them by speaking to everyone.
Try to speak to everyone in the class. You must find someone who did the following things in their summer holidays.
