ESL Activity: Whisper Chain
Whisper Chain is an easy game to set and play. This game works best with a large number of students.
How to play: First, demonstrate the game with a couple of students.
Organise the students into two lines. Go to the students at the back of the line and either whisper a word in their ear or show them a word or a picture. Gesture for them to whisper the word down the line.
When the whisper chain reaches the student at the front of the line you can either have them slap/write/draw an item on the board or pick it from a pile of flash cards in front of them.
Let the students know that if they talk above a whisper or skip students then the other team wins.
This is game can be used to improve the students use of phonics and listening.
