Halloween "Who Am I?" Game
A fun, seasonal way to practice some questions: "What do you have?" and "Where are you from?" Students love to hold the cards and to "win" them from their friends, so they are highly motivated to play.

They also need to follow the instructions, so it helps their listening skills as well. You can also use this as a speaking activity: Cut out enough h...
