I’ve shared many games from Jimmy Fallon Late Night’s show that I’ve modified for my ELL classroom.
Last night, he shared another called “Tandem Sculptionary.”
It’s basically a version of Pictionary. However, instead of drawing, players sculpt clay to use as clues. In this “tandem” game, one player sits behind another to use the clay. That’s not going to work for obvious reasons in most classrooms.
However, since I’ve got plenty of Play-Doh in my room (see Play-Doh & IB Theory Of Knowledge: Student Hand-Out & Videos), I figure just having a student stand in front and using the clay instead of a whiteboard to give clues would be an easy modification.
Let me know if you have other ideas.
