Creating a Digital Guess Who? Game

You may have played the game Guess Who? as a kid. In it, each player was given a bank of 20 or so faces. You each had to choose one and then take turns asking each other yes/no questions until you could guess which person your partner picked. We have the ability to create a similar game but with images related to our subject areas. For example, consider these 16 images of famous art pieces. Students in an art class could practice their knowledge of both art related knowledge and terminology while asking questions.

To create these games we use a software app called Desmos Activity Builder. This app was developed as a companion to Desmos' free graphing calculator and was used primarily to create activities related to math. In this case, the Desmos version of "Guess Who?" is called Polygraph. And even though this app was developed for mathematics, this Polygraph activity creator can easily be used to create these "Guess Who" type games for any subject area. The hard part, really, is just coming up with 16 related images for your students to look at and describe. Watch the video below to see how to create your own.

To help out, I have created some for a few subject areas

Canadian Landscapes: Desmos Polygraph

Identifying Art: Desmos Polygraph

The Periodic Table: Desmos Polygraph

Canadian Iconic Symbols (for French): Desmos Polygraph

And, of course, There are a pile of them created for math: Desmos Polygraph
