Free - Get-to-Know-You Jenga!

Here is a fun way to take the game Jenga to a whole new level while helping your students to get to know each other better. Just download these free Jenga statement slips, cut them apart and tape them to the bottom of your Jenga blocks (great job for a student or parent helper).

Play the game as usual, but when a student pulls out a block, he or she must finish the statement on the block. The strips have statements like:
  • Three adjectives that describe me are...
  • Something I did that I am proud of was...
  • The last great book I read was...
  • My favorite place in the world is...
The statements are designed to be quick so that no one gets bored. This would be great at a center at the start of the year and fun to play throughout the year.


You can also get basic addition and multiplication facts Jenga here (also free).
