I will give students a worksheet with letter they have to unscramble and find WH-word. I make a star on the board and write found WH- words on it. Make another star and have student mirror it with what I already did but this time they have to match it with meaning like : reason,general,person,way,place. Students will have to look in a diagram I will give to them for questions done with WH words. They will use the questions to interview someone from the office as groups.
