Describing People (or anything for that matter)

A simple warm-up game that you can use to generate some interest in this topic that is often review for many students.  Make up a handout with pictures or names of famous people (around 20 is good).  Give some hints, such as,  "He's American," "He's black," "He's a sport player," "He plays golf."  By this time the students will have guessed Tiger Woods.    They will then cross Tiger Woods off their list.  Turn it over to the students and they will take turns describing the people to each other.

This game would also work for almost any topic (animals/food/clothes, etc)
