Can I Take a Message? A Telephone English Role-play

Middle schoolers play a game to practice receiving and relaying telephone messages. They are divided into two groups, callers and receivers. Receivers sit facing a wall, callers behind them. When a caller wants to make a call they tap the shoulder of the receiver in front of them. Receivers tell the caller that whoever is asked for is not there, but they take a message. As receivers get messages, the callers get up to call another friend on the list.

Lesson Planet has given me more time to teach and plan thoughtful lessons rather than spending that time scouring the Internet for resources and just throwing study guides at students!
