Product Description
practice the Q/A so students know the answers, and to help students who may stumble or struggle
Arrange chairs as in the picture, with an even number (an extra student can be the time-keeper)
Place question sets on one side (this worked better than all students having the cards)
Have students practice getting up, moving in a clock-wise direction, then sitting on my command - this is really helpful for my classes

Remind students that students on the right with the cards ASK, and students on the LEFT side answer. CARDS remain on the desks.
Start the 30 second timer (I have changed it to 45 seconds, depending on the group)
people on the right ask, people on the left answer
At the 30 second mark, say “stop” students shift one seat clockwise, then count down “5-4-3-2-1 START!”
The process repeats
When the student is across from the original partner, the “game” is over!

Students can make their own questions, depending on the class, using the same formula, (easy, not so easy, hard, really hard)
I included a template for students to make questions (easy, medium, hard)
Students can work in pairs at their seats, or practice these for quizzes
I laminate the cards but don’t cut them
Cards can be cut for pair work
I use this in my classes and it works, and is really fun!
Students get to work with virtually all students
Students practice asking/answering
game is fast-paced
Timid, shy, or students who struggle also benefit from the repetition and from working with all students
Students have the answers so they see correct answers
