Solve The Riddles – Pronoun & School and Education Activity

Let’s practice with riddles ! Using this game, your students will play with pronouns and review School/Education vocabulary.

How to use this activity?

Display the PDF to your online class and start with one of the green cards. Students try to replace the pronoun with a noun that fits both the theme and the actual pronoun e.g. them = plural; it = singular etc. Give them a time limit to come up with as many responses as possible. All of the cards have an obvious answer, but sometimes students come up with creative ones on their own.

  1. Green cards are the easiest riddles;
  2. Purple cards are utterances which usually use phrasal verbs;
  3. Red cards are meant to be unscrambled;
  4. Blue cards have students make their own riddle with the noun on the card.

I have been teaching English abroad since receiving my CELTA certificate in Poland in 2018. I enjoy tracking my individual students’ development but love having lessons with big groups! Now that I teach online, I am accompanied by my sidekicks Olaf, Mała, Pirate and Bandit on a regular basis.

It takes a team of 13 to create and produce this material. In order for that to continue, please think about purchasing your own subscription to ESL Expertz and encourage your colleagues to do the same. We appreciate your confidence and support!
