"THIS IS MY FAVORITE CLASS EVER!"
- Student who has just played Blind Artist Game on the first day of school.
This hilarious partner game will build relationships in any class, while still teaching crucial elements like the importance of communication, patience, and trusting others. Get to know your students and establish behavior procedures at the same time through this 6-round drawing game. This is a fantastic first day activity and will be sure to build a strong bond between you and your students.
Allow about 20 minutes for this game, which will help your students get their energy out. Only materials required are pencils and scraps of paper. Drawings will be predicably awful and lots of laughs are promised.
MS & HS - This lesson is great for filling extra time after you have gone over your course and syllabus on the first day of school.
HOW TO PLAY:
Students partner up and work together to draw simple images. One partner draws but has to closer his/her eyes, and the other partner guides them through the activity verbally. Partners change every two round (with each student playing each role), and the game includes 6 rounds total.
LESSON INCLUDES: PDF presentation & teacher guide
Honestly, students (and adults!) of all ages find this game hilarious!
CORE SUBJECT INTEGRATION:
Can be used in any class as an icebreaker, get-to-know-you, or team building game. GREAT first day activity.
