Drama Game: Guess Who?

With this game, students can learn that they have something in common with a classmate, or they can learn something interesting about someone that might otherwise have taken all year to discover.

1. Distribute index cards to each student.
2. Each student independently writes one little-known fact about himself/herself on the card. It should be something that people could not know just by looking at them. Students’ names should NOT appear on the cards.
3. Collect and shuffle the cards. As you read each card out loud in turn, invite the class to guess who the fact describes.
4. The activity could be repeated on another day with students listing new facts or with two facts per card.
