1. Have a large hidden container of M&M’s – make it so they can’t see the colour of the M&M’s.
2. As the teacher, you start by picking one M&M. Whatever colour you draw is associated with a basic level 3&4 conversational question.
3. Students raise their hands to answer – I expect full sentences from my students but this can be depending on your students’ level.
4. If a student answers correctly, the one who asked the question eats the M&M (less hands touching the M&M before being eaten). But the student who correctly answered the question now gets a turn to pick an M&M and ask a question.
Note: Feel free to practice asking and answering the questions before doing the actually activity.
