If you leave the castle’ before speaking aloud the name of your animal, you will become that creature for all time! (Ooh. Scary! )
Have the group stand side-by-side in a line cut pattern baby neckscarf free download. Go along the back of the group, taping a card onto their shirt with the name of an animal upon it. Stress the fact that these are being given out completely at random, and that you are just taking them as they come office word download kostenlos chip! These cards aren’t meant to represent the person receiving them. The reason I say this is because I failed to do this once, and one slightly overweight child discovered her card said “pig” on it swarmimage games to. I then spent the next ten minutes trying to explain to her that this was not done on purpose. Do it beforehand. It will save you a lot of grief! The group must now wander around the room, asking questions of each other american truck simulator kostenlos herunterladen. They cannot specifically ask, “Am I a ..? (horse?)” Instead, they are only allowed to ask generic questions. “Do I fly?” “Do I have scales” “Do I like to run?” Etc herunterladen. After approximately ten minutes, stop the group and have them gather around. Ask each person what animal they think they are. After they have guessed, pull the card from their back and show it to them
Communication evocreo kostenlos downloaden. This is a very basic communication game. People are learning to talk with their group and, not only that, but to ask specific questions which will allow them to figure out what they are. This is a very non-threatening way to encourage communication within your group.
Why did we do this activity? Was it easy to figure out what you were? Why or why not? Would it have been easier if I had allowed you to ask if you were a certain type of animal? Why or why not? Why do you suppose I don’t allow you to ask exactly what you are?
Gee, I don’t really know what to tell you! If you use pins to hold the cards on, be careful no one gets poked. Also, watch out for the vicious paper cuts when playing with such dangerous materials… :)
