How to Play

  • This version of a Pass the Ball game uses two balls (or whatever objects you'd like).

  • Give them to two different students.

  • When the music starts, students pass the balls to the students next to them.

  • When the music stops, the two students who have the balls stand up.

  • One student asks the question on the PowerPoint and the other answers (I usually designate this by ball, one is the question ball and the other is the answer ball). 

  • After the students have completed their tasks, the game continues and the music starts again.


  • Feel free to change the task when the music stops. It doesn't have to be a question and answer. This game can also easily be played with one ball. 

  • Depending how you display the information on the screen when the music stops, you can you use this as a speaking or reading game


(NOTE: The runtime for this game can VARY depending on how many rounds you have in the game and how long you play the music in each round.)

No runtime information has been submitted yet for this number of students. If you have used it with your students and would like to share how long it took to play, please fill out the form on the last tab. It would be very much appreciated and would be a big help to other teachers like you!
