"Does he/she" Guess-the-character Game

Students compete to guess as many characters as they can by asking "Does (pronoun) (verb + object)?" questions. This uses the characters in the Sunshine textbooks.

The first sheet contains information about each character and the language that will be needed for the game. Give one copy to each student.
The second sheet contains smaller pictures of the characters. Make a copy of this for every group, and cut them out to make decks.
The rest of the sheets that contain enlarged pictures of the characters are for the demonstration.

The first student takes a character card from the pile and without looking at it, shows it to their groupmates. They ask questions to their groupmates to figure out which Sunshine character it is. The conversation should go something like this:

Student: "Is this a girl?"
Groupmates: "Yes, it is."
Student: "Does she speak Japanese?"
Groupmates: "No, she doesn't."
Student: "Does she live in London?"
Groupmates: "Yes, she does."
Student: "Is this Judy?"
Groupmates: "Yes, it is."

Each student is given X amount of time (perhaps a minute or two) to guess as many characters as possible. Every character guessed is a point. Whoever has the most points, wins.
