A Contest of Wits
Game: Mystery Prompts
How: Put students into groups of 2 or 3. Give each group one of these prompts (or ask them to choose one) and ask them to come up with the story and when they share it with the class it can be either acted or spoken.
How: If you have a computer in the classroom, you may play this game as a class. Ask students to decide on a person -- real or not. Akinator, the giene, will ask them some questions and he will try to guess who the person is after around 20 questions.
If students have their own personal computers, they can play it by themselves later.
Online variation: Share the screen and follow the same instructions.
