Lesson Plan Text

Are you…? Hangman
Secretly write a true sentence starting with “I am…” like “I am cold” or “I am a boy”, using 
words like those on the next page. Write the sentence where people can see it, but with 
just gaps for each letter of the last word (
“I am _ _ _ _”, “I am a _ _ _”, etc). Write a letter in
one of the gaps, e.g. 
“_ _ g _ _” and answer a question about that word from your partner 
with 
“Are you…?” such as “Are you hungry?” Continue adding letters until the word is 
finished or your partner asks the right 
“Are you…?” question. 

Suggested answers
“No, I’m not.”
“Yes, I am, but that’s not the answer.”
“Yes, I am. That’s the answer. One point.”

Do the same with more than one word, as in “I am nine years old” and “I am the oldest 
brother”

Play a similar game but also guessing the letters (without any letter clues from the person 
who wrote the sentence). 

Language presentation
Without looking below, write things that are true about at least one person in this class in 
the right columns below.

I’m a…/ I’m an…/ Are you a…?/ Are you

an…?

I’m…/ Are you…? (without a/ an)

Look below for ideas, then brainstorm more.
