BRIEF OUTLINE: Students imagine their JTE as a sport, a car, an actor - any number of unusual and interesting things. Then, they guess the sport, car, actor, unusual and interesting thing that best describes the JTE.



  • Number cards from 1-5, one set for each group



  1. After forming groups, give each group a set of number cards. The groups will show these cards when they choose their answer.
  2. Read aloud, "Imagine if <insert JTE's name> were a sport, what sport would he/she be? Give the students five choices, like: "1.) basketball, 2.) baseball, 3.) yoga, 4. dance, 5. other." The students choose the number that they think best describes their JTE, and then hold up the corresponding number card, for example, #1 for basketball.
  3. The JTE then tells the class the correct answer.
  4. Groups with the same number as the JTE receive one point.



  • Some suggestions include: song, body part, weapon, car, method of transportation, country, actor/actress and color.
