Who am I?

Each child is given a male or female animal identity, which is unknown to themselves, but is shown to the others by a sticker on their forehead. The idea of this game is for the children to discover their identity, without talking, and then to find their partner and form male/female pairs.

To find out what animal and gender each player is, the children must help each other by looking at each other’s stickers and then giving clues through actions and animal noises, but without talking.

For example, for a bull, a child could display two big horns on his head. For a cow, a child could say “moooo” and show her udders.

At the end of the game, the children should be lined up along the hall, with cow and bull, fox and vixen, cock and hen, boar and sow, and so on, all standing in their pairs.
