Who Am I ?

Instruct each student to write their first and last name in large bold letters on a nametag that has been cut in half (the long way). Then collect all the name tags.

Making sure the student does not see the name, stick a name tag on each person’s forehead. Instruct the teens NOT to speak about who’s name is on each other’s forehead.

On "go" students will pair up and play one round of rock, paper, scissors. The winner gets to ask one "yes or no" question about the physical appearance of their person, such as....

"Is it a boy?"
"Are they wearing jeans?"
"Are they blonde?"
"Are they wearing a hat?"

Once they have answered, players move on to repeat the process.

After a predetermined amount of time, sound the siren and have everyone make a circle. (This makes it more fun to see who is who). This also allows the players to tabulate their clues into an educated guess. Go around and give each person a chance to guess who they are.

NOTE: Remind the students to be careful not to “give it away” as they look around the room to find the person as they answer the question

Didn't work too well with our group. I think they just got confused, so maybe it was my fault. For that reason, I don't feel fair rating it.
