Students bring an object from home in their backpack.
Then they make a large or small matching backpack with a flip-up flap.
There is a space under the flap for students to draw a picture of their object and then write detailed clues about their object.
Students read their clues to the class and have the class try to guess what’s in their backpack. Once the object is guessed the student can take out the real object and share it with the class.
Divide the class into two teams. One team plays against the other team for points. The side that has guessed the most objects scores the most points.
