ESL Riddles

This post looks at a simple idea for using English riddles in the ESL classroom. Riddles can be a great way to get to get students talking, introduce a lesson or maybe just to practice speaking. This post will look at one way the riddles below can be used in class with young learners, teens and even adults.
Method 
 
1. Put students in pairs.
2. In pairs, students try to decide what the item being described is. They must come up with reasons why they think that is the answer and discuss with the class.
3. Make it more interesting by giving points to the pair that guess the most correct answers.
