BRIEF
OUTLINE: This is a number guessing game where students try NOT to get the correct number. Reviews 0-100 (or any other range)

 

MATERIALS NEEDED:

  • Scrap paper for taking notes.

 

DETAILED EXPLANATION:

  1. Students first need to learn "to" in "0 to 100".
  2. Split class into groups of 4-6.
  3. Students play Janken. The winner gets to choose a secret number (write it down!) and doesn't have to guess.
  4. Students take turns guessing a number. After each number is guessed, the student who chose the secret number has to tell the others the current range (they may take notes):

    (the secret number is 23)
    Student A: 81
    Chooser: 0 to 81
    Student B: 22
    Chooser: 22 to 81
    Student C: 25
    Chooser: 22 to 25

    5. The student who got the number right loses. (The game is DON'T guess the right number)

           6. The student who lost gets to choose the next number and the game continues.

 

VARIATIONS:

  •  The loser has to say the ABC's or some English phrase (I like apples).

TEACHING SUGGESTIONS:

  • Encourage students to take notes so that they won't forget what the upper or lower limits are.
