Activity type: this is a fun game in which students have to guess who they are
Level: Pre-intermediate and above
Cut the names out below and get some scotch tape for the lesson.
When the students are in class, stick a famous person’s name on each student’s back.
Tell them that they must find out who they are by asking other students questions. They should try to find out who they are as quickly as possible by asking the other students questions.
Am I alive?
Where did I live?
Did I invent something?
Did I make something?
Did I sing?
Did I act etc.
Tell the students to stand up and to mingle asking and answering questions.
Once the students have found out who they are, stick another name on the students’ backs.
An alternative to this is to ask the students to write a famous person’s name on a slip of paper instead of printing the ones out below. If you do this, you will ensure a good mix of famous people and you will also ensure that the students actually know the famous person.
