Pass the Chicken
questions, and a rubber chicken are the only things needed in order for
this game to work.Before the game
begins, the students should be sitting in a circle on the floor.The
teacher selects one person to be “it” and they will receive a rubber chicken
(provided by the teacher).Next,
the teacher will ask the student, holding the rubber chicken, to “Name
five U.S. Presidents and pass the chicken!”While
the rubber chicken is being passed around the circle, the student has to
name five U.S. Presidents before the chicken gets back into their hands.If
the rubber chicken returns to the hands of the original holder, then that
person is still “it.”If the student
answers the question before the rubber chicken returns to him/her, then
the student holding the rubber chicken is the new “it.”The
object of the game is to not get caught with the rubber chicken!
