How to Play Charades:
1. Separate everyone into teams of about four*. Ask one volunteer from each team come up. The volunteers are not allowed to talk during the game, and aren’t allowed to motion any letters or numbers.

2. Show the volunteers only the first word/phrase. When you say “Go”, the volunteers need to start acting the word/phrase or other hints and help the team guess the word. The first team that raises their hand and guesses the object correctly wins one point for their team.

3. Go through the list of words with new volunteers. The first team to reach 10 points wins the game.

*You can adjust the number of people within each group as you wish.
