Example: Daniel Green wrote a book in Italy by subway last month to be famous.
The sentences are supposed to be funny and students can’t show each other sentence, they have to ask Yes/ No questions, in order to guess any players sentence. They have to throw the dice before asking a question and move to the square the dice indicates, then they have to ask only one question per turn until they find out any player’s mystery sentence.
Examples: (Who) Are you Laura Smith? (Action) Did you cook dinner? (Where) Were you in India? (How) Did you go on foot? (When) Was it yesterday? (Why) Was it for love?
For each question made, students take notes on their answer sheet (page 3) with Yes/ No until they discover another player’s mystery sentence. The winner is the player that guesses another player’s sentence first.
