Who am I? • “Who am I?” is a guessing game where we will use the traits and characteristics of famous, historical, or TDOE figures to break the ice with each other.
Directions • A TDOE staff member will place a nametag on your back. • Each participant must try to guess who they are, by only asking “yes” or “no” questions. • You may only ask 4 questions to each person to gain clues. For example: • “Am I a male?” • “Am I a singer?” • “Am I an athlete?” • “Am I a TV personality?” • Once you have asked the 4 questions, you must move on to another person and ask 4 more questions until you guess correctly. • You will have 10 minutes to figure out “Who am I?”
