Who's that girl?

Note: The chalkboards that I use are magnetic, which helps facilitate this game. First I place a picture on the chalkboard. Then with our revealing what the picture is I cover it with magnetic cards numbered from 1 to 16. When I am finished, the picture is completely covered by the sixteen cards arranged in a 4 by 4 grid.

The game is simple. I ask a question pertaining to whatever the students are studying. A student who knows the answer raises his hand. If the answer is correct the he scores a point and chooses a number from 1 to 16. I then remove that card from the board so that that part of the picture is revealed. The student may now guess what or who the picture is of. If the student is correct then he scores an extra 5 points. If the student is incorrect then I ask the next question.

‚ve can do this for a number of questions, and for any point that the students are studying. It just spices up various English subjects that are not so interesting on their own.
