Materials needed: Safety pins or tape

Preparation: Cut out the words from the three worksheets below so that there is one word for each child. It may be necessary to have more than one copy of each word.

  • Stick one animal on each student, but don’t let them see it! The students have to mingle and ask each other questions to find out what animal they are. For example:

What colour am I?

Am I fast or slow?

Where do I live?

  • After finding out which animal they are, the children make themselves available to be asked questions by the others who haven’t yet found out.
  • To make the activity harder, tell the students they are only allowed to as ’Yes/No’ questions, and/or set a limit as to the number of questions they are allowed to ask.
  • The game can be played with other categories of words (e.g. places in the city, objects in the room, vegetables, countries, famous people, etc).
