6-Guessing Who You Are


Every player writes a name of a famous person on a paper slip - for his or her neighbour. It shouldn't be too difficult for the neighbour to guess the name. Of course, you have to be careful that your neighbour can't see the name. Then stick the slip onto your neighbour's forehead with a bit of soft cream. One after the other asks questions about "him" or "herself". If the answer is yes, you can put one more questions. If not, it's the next person's turn. The people play till the last one has found out his or her name.

Educational objective:

·        repeat and strengthen question

·        keep facts in mind

·        train concentration


·        instead of a person you can use a thing or trade/profession




You write on the board as many dots as there are letters in a word. The players guess one after the other. If the letter is right, you can have another one. If not you continue drawing the gallows.

Educational objective:

·        repeat and strengthen spelling

·        strengthen alphabet


·        guess sentences, expressions or sayings



8-Just A Minute


Every player gets a sheet of paper and makes a table with the followings columns - town/city, country, name, river, etc. The first player says go and another counts the alphabet up or downwards in mind till the first player says "Stop". Then the letter is announced and every player has one minute time or one player has found a word for every column. Then you get points for the words you have found. Don't forget to set the number of rounds before you start.

Here is a suggestion for giving points:

·        for the word in a column where no other player has one - 40

·        for the player that has a word in every column - 30

·        for the word that no other player has - 20

·        for the word that another player has - 10

Educational objective:

·        repeat and strengthen certain word fields

·        strengthen spelling


·        alter the columns to your needs

·        alter the points to your needs
