Hot seating has been used for many years in primary schools. One child or adult goes onto the hot seat (a chair which you could decorate to make it look important) and sits in front of the class or group. Other children ask questions to find out more about the character. It is usually used to develop the character for example in a book. The person on the hot seat must think and act like the character. It could also be used to find out more about a person.
