Fold-over stories

Level: Any Level.

Students need to know question words
Procedure: Give each student a sheet of blank paper. Write the following words on the board one under the other: WHO?, WHAT ?, HOW ?, WHERE ?, WHEN ?, WHY ?

Explain that everyone will be writing a sentence story.

1. Tell students to write someone's name at the top of their paper, e.g. their own, a classmate's, the teacher's, a famous person that everyone knows.

2. Students fold the paper over once so that no one can see the name, then pass the paper to the person on their right.

3. Students write on the received paper what the subject did (suggest funny or outrageous actions), fold it over and pass it on to the right.

4. Students answer the next question (where?) fold the sheet and pass it to the right.

5. Repeat with the remaining question words.

6. Have the students unfold their stories, and read them silently. Help anyone who cannot read what the others wrote, or doesn't understand.

7. Ask one student at a time to read "their" story aloud and vote for the funniest.
