ESL Dice Questions

Dice Questions is a fun way of getting students to practice question forming. This game requires two dice or you can use our interactive online classroom dice. In pairs, or as a class, students take turns rolling the dice. Each number on the die corresponds to a type of question – ‘who’, ‘what, ‘where’, ‘why’ and ‘have you ever’.

The second die or the second time the die is rolled shows how many points that student or team will get for asking a correct question.
