Who Am I? Game Clues are cut into strips, arranged in order and placed in an envelope. Each team receives a different set of clues. Teams use the clues and the EMC Guide to discover who their team monitor is. Teams read each of their clues and compare them to the EMC monitor descriptions. Clue by clue, and using p. 3 of the SB, teams find out who their cabin monitor is by eliminating the monitors that do not match their clues. Class 2 Task 1 C1 40 min.
Where Am I? Game All teams have the same cards. Teams become familiar with different locations on the campsite. Teams read the questions on p. 4 of the SB and the possible answers on the game cards. They place each game card on the answer grid, aligning their chosen answer with the stars on the grid. When they have finished, they turn the game cards over to see if they chose the right answers. The answer key appears on the back of the cards. Students complete p. 4 of the SB. Class 2 Task 2 C1 20 min.
What Am I? Game All teams have the same clues. Teams use clues to identify an activity. Using the clues and the Activities box on p. 5 of the SB, teams try to identify the activities that are being described. Clue by clue, teams eliminate activities that do not match their clues to identify the activity being described. The EMC Guide is a resource. Class 3 Task 3 C1 15 min.
Camp Activity Card Individually, students complete their Camp Activity Card on p. 6 of the SB.
