Daily Schedule Activity

It seems that in most beginner ESL textbooks (I'm using Top Notch 1 now), that there is a unit on daily schedules, such as "what time do you get up?" or "what do you do in the afternoon?"  A fun (!?) activity that you can do is to have students interview their partner.  You can pre-select questions for lower-level classes or let the students choose their own questions for higher levels.  Make sure you specify a minimum number of questions if you let the students choose their own.   Have the students jot down a few notes as they go.  Then, they have to close their notebooks, and in a group of 4, they have to explain their partner's daily schedule.
