Whiteboard Word Game

I am pleased that the replies are positive about the game. You are absolutely correct about how the game should be played Solange. I hope that it goes down well with your residents. I also do it as a quiz as some people cannot read the whiteboard because of poor eyesight. I just follow the same principle but I just go through the alphabet instead and for example ask each person to name 2 animals beginning with the letter a and then just carry on until z. I do the same with clothes, food, places of interest, names, famous people, musical instruments etc.

Thanks so much for all your suggestions. I will certainly look at the website April as that sounds pretty good. Great ideas there Michael but I don't work in the evenings so looking at the sky at night isn't really something that I can do right now.

Thanks for your help Karen. I have a tablet that I use for work so I will look up things on that. You are definitely right about things getting messy and saves carrying things around too.

I found a scientific activity for a resident that used to enjoy science at school.

All you need is a piece of paper, a pen, a toilet roll inner, a phone and a coin plus 5 participants.

The object is to test if everyone is either predominantly left or right.
The names of the participants is written down one side of the paper and across the top hand, eye, foot and ear are written.

The first person is handed a pen and they have to write their name on the paper and then the person conducting the experiment writes left or right for hand.

The same participant is handed the toilet roll inner and the person conducting the experiment marks down what ear they put it to.

The same participant has to stand on the coin and it is marked down what foot they use to stand on it.

The same participant is handed a phone and then it is marked down what ear they used to listen.

Hi! Everyone. I have a resident that is really interested in science when she was at school so I am looking for some ideas so that I create some activities for her.
