General Goal(s): The student will learn about famous African American historic figures .
Specific Objectives: The student will use descriptive yes or no questions to guess which figure the other person is talking about.
Required Materials: Attached powerpoint presentation, scissors, and laminate the pieces (optional)
Anticipatory Set (Lead-In): The teacher will point to and discuss each of the famous African American people on slide 2 and 3 by reading
from slide 4.
Step-By-Step Procedures: 1) The teacher will complete the lead-in activity. (2) Students will be grouped into pairs (3) Each pair will be given
slide 2 and 3 (4) Students will cut out pictures and captions from the slides. (5) students will select one of the historic figures to have their
partner guess (like the game of guess who) (6) Students will then place the remaining cards face up on their desk(7) Students will take
turns to ask questions about the person they have on your card. This could be "Do they wear glasses?", "Do they have a moustache?", "Do
they have blue eyes?" The other player simply answers "Yes" or "No". Depending on the answer you can then turn over the cards of the
people who you know it is definitely not. For example if you asked "Does your person have a moustache?" and the answer is "Yes" then
you can turn over all the pictures of the people who do not have a moustache. You can only ask one question on each turn. So on your
next round you can then ask another question in an attempt to eliminate further people. The first player to “guess who” their opponent is
wins the game.
*If you would like to make the game more advanced have the students guess about what the people did. Example: “was your person a
famous baseball player”
