Who am I?


Pictures (e.g. from newspapers, magazines, the internet) or notes with academic concepts.


Each students gets a picture of a person put on their back (in social studies it could be a politician) so they cannot see the picture themselves. The students now walk around each other. The aim is to find out who they are by asking questions to the other students. They are only allowed to answer the questions ‘yes’ or ‘no’. Academic concepts could be used instead of photos.


  • Biology – plants
  • Religious education – Nordic Gods
  • History – American presidents
  • Chemistry – acids and alkaline in the home
  • Foreign languages – nouns, cities or famous people, but the students are only allowed to ask the questions in the foreign language


In foreign languages the opposite version of the game could also be made where each student hides a thing under their shirt. The aim is for the other students to guess what is under the shirt. You are only allowed to answer ‘yes’ or ‘no’ when you are asked.
