Here's the answer... What's the Question?

Here's The Answer... But What's The Question? Great for encouraging deeper thinking and and evidencing understanding.

This quick activity is a super tool to test pupils in a low stakes environment. Pupils think that they're simply coming up with a question for the answer you've provided them with, yet at the same time they're consolidating their knowledge and revealing their understanding. This is most commonly used as a starter or plenary.

  1. Provide pupils with a list of possible answers to questions.
  2. The challenge is for the pupils to correctly identify / create a matching question. 

Differentiation/Extension:

  • Pupils to use the questions and answers as a basis for revision cards
  • Ask pupils to create the answers, for their peers to identify the question
