ONE BRAIN TEASER WE KNOW – BUT DON’T KNOW WE KNOW

Where do ideas come from?

1. Ideas don’t come from watching television.

Seth Godin

Unless you are a language teacher. This source of inspiration has never failed me, not once. The best part of it is that new (or not so new) ideas just happen.

I have already shared a few such activities on my blog (e.g. see CAN YOU GUESS WHAT I LOOK LIKE? – this game works great as an online activity). Today, I’d like to share a brain teaser inspired by my recent ‘Friends’ marathon (while doing a one-two-three-kick conga line dance to celebrate my summer break finally!).

WE KNOW THEY KNOW

Dictate or display the following five words and ask your students to come up with the longest sentence they can:

They; we; don’t; know; that

The answer:

 

They don’t know that we know they know we know
