OBJECT: The object of the game is to guess the secret vocabulary word by asking up to 20 yes/no questions.
Place one chair at the front of the class and turn it facing the other students (away from the board).
Invite a volunteer student to sit in the chair.
Explain that he/she must guess a word that you’re going to write, using yes/no questions only.
On the board, write one of the vocabulary words from the list.
Tell the student to begin asking questions in order to guess the person, place, thing or idea written on the board. He/she will have 20 chances to ask and guess as well as three clues.
-Clue #1: the first letter of the word (“W”)
-Clue #2: the number of letters in the word (“W _ _ _ _ _”)
-Clue #3: all of the vowels in the word (“W i _ _ e _”)
