Before class, make one copy of the worksheet for each pair of students. Procedure Divide the class into pairs. If possible, put students with someone they dont usually work with or don't know very well. Give one student Worksheet A and the other student Worksheet B. Each student should write his or her partners name in the space at the top of the worksheet. Students work individually and try to guess if their partner can or can't do the activities listed on their worksheet. They underline or circle can or can't in each sentence without talking to their partner. When they have finished, students take it in turns to ask their partner if they can do the activities listed on their worksheet. Example: Can you draw a square and a circle at the same time? For each statement students have guessed right, they put a tick in the second column on the worksheet, and for each one they get wrong they put a cross. If possible, students should ask their partner to demonstrate their ability. The student in the pair who gets the most answers correct is the winner. Students then come to the front of the class and tell the other students about their partner. Example: I talked to Pam. She can remember the teacher's full name, but she cant snowboard.
