Can You Name More Than 4? A Game To Get Kids Thinking


Today during Lunch Bunch, I wanted to be able to see if my students remembered the skills we have been working on all year.  I made this game as way for them to practice their team building skills, as well as to reinforce all the topics we have covered.  

I broke My Lunch Bunch up into teams of 4-6 students.  I gave each one a post it note that was either blue, purple, or pink.  These helped to sort my groups.  

To play is easy.  Just roll a die or flip a coin to move, land on a circle, then give 5 answers for that question.  I gave each team 1 minute to come up with their five answers.  



Some of the questions include:

  • Careers that start with "C"
  • Ways to avoid drama
  • Ways to apologize
  • Compliments you can give someone
  • Things in your locker
  • Reasons people dance



Some of the questions were definitely funny and others more serious.  All in all, it was a great way to review.

Because I had a full room, we put the game board up on the whiteboard and used magnets as our game pieces.
Here are few pictures from today.
