A Spin on Charades

We know most of you already know how to play charades. But this activity is a little bit different.

In this activity, the class will split into groups of two. The facilitator (or one person from each group) will act out different words (see word bank below), and the rest of the team will have to guess which word they are acting out. Both teams will act out the same word, so it’s a race to see which team can guess the word first! But there’s a catch- only one person from each group can raise their hand to guess which word their teammate is acting out. This person, the assigned leader, is the only one who will be allowed to guess the word. And after each round, a new assigned leader will be picked from each group. So get excited to have dynamic shifts in leadership and communication in each round of the game. The first team to 10 points wins!
