PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Here is a great back to school game! Use these statement strips to make Jenga into a fun way for students to get to know each other better. There are 54 statement strips, one for each block in a standard Jenga game.

Simply cut out the statement strips and tape each one onto the bottom of a different Jenga block (this is a great job for a student or a parent volunteer). If you use 3/4 inch tape, the tape will cover the strip perfectly.

Set up the game as usual with the statement strips facing down. Play the game following the normal Jenga rules, except that when a student successfully pulls out a block, he or she must read the statement on the block and then finish it. It shouldn't take more than a sentence of two for each student to finish the statement - that way the game can keep moving and no one will get bored.

Absolutely Awesome !
I made one adjustment to the following block though...
"If I could change one thing about myself I would change..."
When the kids started saying things like :
"...I would change my legs"
"...I would change my eyes"
"...I would get bigger breasts"
"...I would change my every body"
I thought that this is a real sad block and changed it to
"If I could change one thing about the world I would change..."

I got very creative answers and much more inspiring too.

This activity sounds fun, however, I teach high school ESL and don't have time for longer games. But, these will be great for my intermediate students to introduce themselves as an ice breaker. Usually my students know each other and the usual "Find someone who..." isn't much fun for them. Thanks, Rachel. I'm going to use this one next month!! :)

Hi Rachel,

I am very interested in downloading this activity however my mac cannot seem to open the downloaded file. What default application can be used to open the file on a Mac OSX?

If possible, can the file be emailed to mbreaugh@ssrsb.ca


Thanks for you help.

Teachers Pay Teachers
On  April 9, 2013Erin Grace (TpT Seller) asked:
Rachel, is there a specific type or brand of tape that you use, in addition to the 3/4" sizing? I tried applying packing tape to a Jenga block (so that I could write/erase on it), but the tape interfered with the blocks coming out without taking half the tower with it.
Teachers Pay Teachers
On  April 9, 2013Rachel Lynette answered:
I just used regular scotch tape - the kind that is more muted than shiny, if you know what I mean. It fit perfectly and isn't sticky on the top.

Hope that helps!
