How to Play

  • Print the 1 through 30 numbered sheets and cut into strips.
  • Give each student a strip making sure that the numbers are in random order so students don’t know the order of the responses.
  • If you have fewer than 30 students, give a couple of students two strips. If you have more than 30 students, have a few participate with a partner.

As you can see in the below example for #1 and #2, each strip tells the student what dialogue comes before them so they are prepared for their dialogue.
