What/Who Am I Game Cards


“What/Who Am I” is a game that can be used to teach
verbal knowledge in the classroom in an interactive manner.  Some people use labels for this game but I prefer name cards and name holders.  Stick-on
labels are not reusable. Sometimes the teacher’s writing is hard to read.  Typed, printed name cards are reusable and more legible.  Maybe it takes more time to
make the printed cards the first time but later it’s a time saver.

I generally have the students fill in the boxes of the name cards that have been printed on regular paper and handed out before doing the game.  The students fill in the boxes with pertinent information.  They can fill in the information in groups, or as home work and then fill in the blanks via discussion with the whole class.

The game then reinforces what they have learned from filling in the boxes.  The name cards can be printed on card stock paper and taken out and reinserted into the same class set of name card holders.  I print different categories of names on different colored card stock paper for easy identification.

A name card is attached to the back collar of all the students by student helpers.  The use of student helpers greatly speeds up the process of attaching name cards to 30 something students and is highly recommended.  You thenattach the name cards to the back collars of the student helpers so they do not know what is on their cards.  The students ask the other students “Who am I”?  I have gone ahead and created cards for the categories below.  The tables can be pasted and copied into Microsoft Word and then printed but make sure to change the page orientation to landscape to get the correct dimensions of the cells!  The dimensions of the cells are designed so the name cards can be easily inserted and removed from most card holders that can be bought in an office supply store.

Below are the sets of name cards I have created so
