Looking for a new activity for back to school? Get the school year off to a great start with "Guess Who", a fun interactive game that helps students of all ages get to know their classmates. This game is a great ice-breaker and helps to build a positive classroom community during the start of the school year. "Guess Who" is suitable for all grade levels, from pre-K through elementary.

Here's the basic concept of the "Guess Who". Boxes on the game board are randomly tapped, revealing part of a student photo underneath. Classmates “guess who” it is until the photo is completely revealed.

A numbered version of the game board includes a question worksheet that is filled out prior to the game by each student. Information about the corresponding student is read aloud to give a clue in addition to the picture cues revealed when a box is tapped.

The sample images show the title page, two game boards, and the student question worksheet.

This game does require prior preparation. Click here to watch a video tutorial to learn more about how to set up and play Guess Who..

Here are the specific items included with this game:
*Smart Notebook Lesson with 2 game board pages (5 total pages)
*Student question worksheet in Word (so that questions can be changed if desired)

The student question worksheet is included in the attachments tab of the Notebook Lesson. Just download the lesson after purchase and open it in Smart Notebook. Click on the attachments tab (paper clip icon on the right or left side) and you see it. Click on the title and it will open up.

NOTE: This version will work only with the Smart Board brand of interactive whiteboard that includes Notebook software. If you have another brand of interactive whiteboard (Promethian Activboard, E-beam, Mimeo, etc), please purchase the PowerPoint version of my Guess Who game.
