- One-minute timer
- Newsprint, markers and tape or paper and pen/pencil
- Candies or another treat
Preparation for Activity
- Familiarize yourself with rules of the game.
- Copy the handouts. For the game, half the group (one team) will use copies of Handout 1 and the others will use Handout 2. After the game, you may offer all participants the handout they have not yet seen.
Description of Activity
Invite the group to form two teams. With more than 12 participants, consider forming four teams and running two separate games.
Give one team copies of Handout 1 and the other team copies of Handout 2. The first team will choose a question from their handout to ask the other team. Using the timer, give the second team one minute to huddle and come up with a response. If the second team responds correctly, they receive a point.
Then, the second team may pose a question from their handout to the first team. Give the first team one minute to respond. Keep score on newsprint or on a pad of paper.
After the game, give everyone a copy of the handout they have not seen. Offer a round of applause to the team with the most points and invite all to share the treat you have brought, now or during a break.
