PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Use these author cards as an icebreaker and team builder activity at the beginning of the school year. Much like the classic “21 Questions Game,” students walk around the classroom asking one another questions in order to use deductive reasoning and guess the authors on the cards on their backs. Each card has information on the authors to help students respond to the questions. This activity is great for getting students engaged in their learning and for creating a positive classroom climate.

The activity includes a selection of 32 diverse authors and blank cards that can be made for additional desired authors. The following authors are included (in color and black & white):

J.K. Rowling
Dr. Seuss
John Green
Emily Dickinson
William Shakespeare
George Orwell
John Steinbeck
Harper Lee
F. Scott Fitzgerald
Lois Lowry
Mark Twain
J.D. Salinger
Mary Shelley
Charlotte Bronte
S.E. Hinton
Zora Neal Hurston
Charles Dickens
Suzanne Collins
Arthur Miller
Stephen King
C.S. Lewis
Henry David Thoreau
Sherman Alexie
Walter Dean Myers
Sharon Draper
Sandra Cisneros
Gary Paulsen
Langston Hughes
Walt Whitman
Lorraine Hansberry
J.R.R. Tolkien
William Golding
