MAIN POINT: This game helps students get to know one another and work on communication.
Split the group into girls and guys. (Leader’s are excluded, as you will be the panel of judges.) Put teams on opposite sides of the room. Dedicate one person from each group to be “it”. Give each group 5 minutes to find out as much about “it” as they can. After 5 minutes, have each person go around and say something about “it”. (It may be something they like, something they don’t like, something they have done, etc.)
Once each group has had a chance to speak, the panel of judges (leaders) will ask some questions to each group. If the group can answer them, that is good and looked highly upon. After the judges are done asking questions, they will decide on who had better information about the person. It’s up to you if you want to judge strictly by opinion, panel vote (holding up fingers or cards to indicate “Team 1” or “2”), or award points with the higher points winning.
Encourage each group to not make all the information physical, such as hair color or eye color.
