  1. You need many short sentences or phrases written on strips of paper. For example:

    He goes bowling every week.
    She often orders pizza for supper.
    My father went to hunt ducks last weekend.

  2. Put the strips of paper in a box or bag.

  3. Divide participants into groups of 4 or 5.

  4. One participant from one team draws a sentence or phrase out of the bag. They then act out the charade (the sentence or phrase), while the rest of the team tries to guess what it is.

  5. The team gets one point if they guess the complete sentence within the time limit.

  6. Other teams must watch quietly until it is their team's turn.
