Charades Relay

Divide group into 2 or more teams. Have everyone spread out so that they cannot overhear the surrounding teams. Review basics of charades. One person acts out a word or phrase without speaking while the team tries to guess. Show an example to the class. Prepare a list of items from among several categories. Teams compete against each other to trying to be the first to guess all items on the list for each category. To start ask one member from each team to come to you. Whisper the first word into their ear and return them to their group to being acting it out. Once a member of the group guesses the word correctly, someone new from that team runs to the instructor for the next word. No one can come up twice until everyone has acted out an item from the list. The new member must tell the instructor the word they just guessed to receive the next word from the list. The game is over once a team completes the entire list.
