If you and your students liked the original This or That, these 20 new questions will get them talking even more!
Perfect for back to school, class parties, or the end of the year, this fun icebreaker game will help students get to know each other and feel more comfortable in your classroom without any corny gimmicks or embarrassing questions. This or That focuses on getting students talking on a variety of interesting, low-risk topics.
How it Works:
This game has students informally debate on light topics such as "Should teachers assign more independent work or group work?" Students have to choose a position--there is no middle!--and stand in a part of the room that best represents their opinion. Other questions, like "Do you prefer baths or showers?" help students see which other students have the same preferences as they do. This game is a HUGE hit with students: Not only does the discussion help them learn a lot about each other in a short amount of time, it's also just fun.
Although this game can be played by any age, the questions in this game are most appropriate for grades 6-12. Younger students would still love it -- you just may need to edit a few questions to make them a better fit.
This game has been created as a gorgeous, animated PowerPoint presentation, complete with 20 questions; all you have to do is set it in slideshow mode and the game is on! No extra equipment is required. There is a Windows version and a Mac version. And it's EDITABLE
, so you can change or add questions to suit your students. It also works in Google Slides: Just upload the PowerPoint to your Drive, open it with Slides, and put it into presentation mode!
