National Stereotypes

Americans love guns.


Game about countries:

Students will volunteer themselves to play the Guessing game. One student at a time will stand in front of the classroom, holding a piece of paper by their forehead. On that paper, a certain race, ethnicity, or thing will be written. The student is not allowed to look at the paper. The student must ask questions to the class about the generally known aspects of the particular race or ethnicity on the paper. Using these reactions, the student may then guess what race, ethnicity or thing is on the paper.
