WHAT AM I (IN EUROPE)?
In this guessing game, a card is taped to each student’s back or forehead. Written on it is the name of a city, country, major physical feature or landmark in Europe. The “player” cannot see the name, but the rest of the class or group can. The “player” must guess what the place is by asking questions with a “yes” or “no” answer. For example:


  • Am I a river?

  • Am I a country?

  • Am I a city? Capital?

  • Am I a major landmark?

  • Am I in Eastern or Western Europe?

  • Am I on the coast?

Other students should have a map available to consult in order to be able to answer the player’s questions correctly. Provide a time limit – e.g., three minutes. After that, the class helps the student by giving hints, until the student either guesses or gives up.



Extensions:

Example for north to south: Arctic Ocean, Scandinavia, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Mediterranean Sea

Example for west to east: Atlantic Ocean, France, Switzerland, Vienna, Hungary, Bucharest, Black Sea

  • Have students each choose a location/feature to “explore” and report on. Have them use the “Pizza Box Project” format (lesson on GENI website) for a new and fun way to present their topic.



Adaptations:

  • Choose only one feature at a time. For example, only have cards with countries on them or only water features, etc.

  • Choose only countries and require students to name the capital of their country once they have guessed what country they are.

  • Choose only rivers or major landmarks and require students to name the country their feature is found in once they have guessed the feature they are.

  • Have the students tape their card to their chest and instead of guessing what they are, simply have them use a European map to arrange themselves in correct proximity to each other.
