on the cards but have to remember the info, they wrote. Then T picks the cards and start giving
information: I know a person who is the yongest in his family. He is tall, he likes to read poems
but he doent like to read novels. Ss have to mingle and ask tag questions to find the person.
When one St finds him/her, he say it aloud and then T. gives another cards information. The person
