When is your birthday?
It’s January 3rd
Students will each be given a paper with 2 grids on it. One grid is their secret board, one is their guessing board.
Students will put 3 shapes on their secret boards.
They want to try to guess the 3 shapes on their partners board before their partner guesses the shapes on their own board.
To make a guess students must say dates (example January 10th) the other student will look at their board and see if part of a shape is there. They will say Yes or No.
The students take turns making guesses until one of the students has found all the other students shapes.
Have students tell me their birthdays when they are finished.
