WOULD YOU RATHER HALLOWEEN GAME
Get your students moving and laughing in October with this hilarious, spooky Halloween edition of WOULD YOU RATHER? with 21 funny and thought-provoking questions.
HOW IT WORKS:
Students are given 2 unsavory but funny choices and must decide which they would prefer. Your students are guaranteed to have a great time, as well as to connect with their peers. Students move to the A or B side of the room to indicate their choice. My favorite thing about this game is that students are constantly shifting sides and they get to see that they have commonalities with nearly every person in their class. It is a wonderful tool for creating friendships!
