September 28: Ask a Stupid Question Day

image from alisonimiller.com

Well, we certainly don’t want to teach kids that their questions are stupid, but we can celebrate asking questions in general with a variation on the game “20 Questions.”


20 Questions

Materials:

  • None

Directions:

  1. One child (the guesser) leaves the room.
  2. While child is out of the room, another child is picked to be “it”.
  3. When the guesser returns, (s)he gets to ask up to 20 questions that can be answered yes or no to determine who was picked.
Variations:
  • Can the guesser figure out who was picked with just ten guesses?
  • What if two people switch places and guesser has to figure out who switched?
