Preparation: Pens and lots of paper!
The only thing you need for this game is a pen and a half of a sheet of piece paper for each student. Begin by handing the first student a random sentence on a piece of paper. The first student will then sketch their interpretation of that sentence down for the next person. Once done, they pass just their drawing (do not pass the original sentence) to the person on their right. That person looks at the drawing and then puts that piece of paper to the bottom of the pile of paper. On the new piece of paper, they write what they think that picture was. Once they do this, the cycle repeats, and the new sentence will be handed to the next person. The third person looks at the sentence and then puts the paper on the bottom of the pile, and draws a picture and passes the stack on. Do this until the original artist all has their picture/sentence back. It’s extremely funny to see what becomes of the original sentence.
