“Who am I” is probably familiar for most teachers. Still, it is a fun game where all your students engage orally, in a festive competition. You may choose to play the game with the whole class together, or you can divide into smaller groups.

Instructions:

Step 1, Names

Hand out a post-it note to each student, and let him or her write down the name of a famous person or character, or use the cards we have provided here.

If you let your students come up with the names, tell them to choose a well-known person so that it doesn’t become too difficult to guess the correct answer.

Step 2, Attach the names

All players place a note on the forehead of a fellow student (do not let them see the answer). You may use adhesive tape, or simply use post-it notes.

Step 3, Start playing!

The aim of the game is to deduce who “you are” by asking “yes” and “no” questions. This may be done one at a time revolving in a circle. The winner is the first player to guess his or her name first.

There are several ways to play, and you may customize according to who´s playing.

  1. Each player has one question before moving on to the next in the circle
  2. Each player asks questions until he or she gets a “no”-answer. Then the next player in the circle have a go.
  3. Each player asks questions until he or she guesses the correct character. In this case, the aim is to ask as few questions as possible.
