Don't have the time to make the Jenga game? Try the games below! (Included in this unit!)
This game follows the same idea as Jenga talk without the wood blocks. With this game, the students will pull out numbers from a box to answer questions.
Then, they'll select a question from the corresponding box to answer with their teammates.
★Mystery Stick Talk★
If you are having trouble finding the mini jenga sets, try Mystery Stick Talk! The concept is the same but for this game you will use popsicle sticks for the students to choose their answers!
Now you can get your students talking with the use of dice! You can even make it more engaging using jumbo or inflatable dice.
Quick clean up and low prep!
