10 Questions

For Middle Level & Elementary


Community Level 1 – Acquainted


Materials: Notecards

How To Play: Working in groups, the leader provides players with a topic. Players then think of specific examples of the topic and privately record their examples on an index card. Within each group, players take turns asking questions of each group member, trying to discover each others’ topic examples. When players have asked 10 questions, the group has three chances to guess the example.

Examples:
Events leading to the American Revolution (topic) / sugar tax (specific example)
The water cycle (topic) / aquifers (specific example)

Plan for Success: Determine in advance whether the players in a group will form their guesses together or if individuals will guess.

Variations: Groups could select their own topics from a list of current study topics.
