Scattergories
 

  1. Divide the participants into groups of 4 or 5.

  2. Ask the participants call out 10 different categories of objects-for example, river, food, car, girls' name, animal, country, etc. The more categories you have, the longer each game will be.

  3. Write the categories on the board or a flipchart paper.

  4. Ask one of the participants to choose a letter of the alphabet-for example, 'm'.

  5. When the facilitator says "Go!", all the groups have to try to write down an example for each category beginning with that letter.

  6. You can do this in an Aboriginal language. Instead of using a particular letter, you may want to use only the category to make it easier. You decide!

For example:
River
Food
Cars
Girls' name
Animal
Country
  Mackenzie
mushrooms
Mercedes Benz
Mary
marten
Mexico
