Questions about a StatementSkills: practicing the formation of wh-questions and yes/no questionsWrite a statement on the board. The statement can be about anything, real or absurd. Get the students to think up as many questions about the statement as they can. For example, a statement might be “The moon is made of green cheese.” Students could then come up with questions like:• “Why is the moon made of green cheese?”• “Has the moon always been made of green cheese?”• “Is it light or dark green cheese?”• “What type of cheese is it?”• “How was it made?”• “What does the cheese taste like?”
