Brief Description

One person who is it tries to figure out who they are. The leader shows everyone the name of "it." (For example, they could be superman). It has to ask the group yes or no questions to figure out who they are.

This Is How You Play

  1. Chose someone who is it and ask them to turn around or close their eyes.#Write down on a piece of paper the name of a person, place or thing and then show the rest of the group. The rest of the group cannot give the answer away.
  2. The person who is it can only ask yes or no questions to figure out who or what they are.

Examples of what's written on the paper

  • If you're studying animals, pick an animal!
  • If you're feeling silly, pick famous people or cartoon animals.


Variations for Younger Students

  • Younger students may need examples of questions they could ask such as, is it alive? Is the person famous? Is the person a boy? Is the person in a movie? Is the animal a mammal? Is the animal a carnivore.

Also younger students may need hints. You could give the person who is it, three people they can ask to give them a hint.
