How To Play Would You Rather?
Would you rather questions can be used as fun ice breaker questions, or as a fun game to play in the classroom or while teaching online / teaching on zoom. To play, first, introduce the would you rather question and check if the kids understand the question. Once you’re sure students understand the question, tell them that they must choose one option and they cannot choose both.
Next, ask students to tell you their initial choice. This can be done by simply asking students to raise their hand in a classroom, or if teaching on zoom you could ask each student individually or ask them to type in their answer. Encourage students to answer using full sentences (for example, “I would rather eat only ice cream.”). Once students have told you their initial answer about what they would rather do, it’s time to ask students why they made that choice.
This is the fun part and a great opportunity to get kids talking and expressing themselves in English. The reasons kids give when answering funny would you rather questions are often hilarious and what makes the would you rather game so fun to play with young learners. Once all students have had a chance to explain why they chose what they did, ask them if anyone has changed their mind after hearing the reasons the other students gave.
Even though these would you rather questions are funny and silly, kids can still get upset if other students laugh or make fun of their answer. For this reason, before discussing their reasons, be sure to tell the kids that they must respect each other’s opinions and that no answer is a stupid answer.
