Name that Person!


A Pilot! A Voice! An Artist! An Explorer! Let's play Name that Person! Use two volunteers with a buzzer between them or have your whole group ready to guess. Share a few important facts about that person. (Use your television game voice.) The first person to ring the buzzer guesses. If no one knows the answer let your whole group guess or when you're done sharing the information, everyone yells out the name of the person. Ready? (perfect for school and library programs or outreach into schools) Through new and favorite children's biographies discover someone new!
