Mystery Book Game
My coworker and I noticed that some of the reviews our students were posting on Destiny Quest left something to be desired. They mostly just praised the book using words with many extra letters and even more punctuation marks. So we came up with the idea of challenging them to describe a book without using character or place names. We then collected the slips and read them out loud to the class to see if they could guess the title. We originally tried it with 5th graders, but they had so much fun we decided to play the game with our 3rd and 4th graders too. I then typed the descriptions up and put them in a slideshow to display in the library so that others can play along as well. I've included it below.
