Looking for a couple of simple, short games for third graders. This is for a classroom of 20 during a class party. They need to be very short so everyone can be involved (10 minutes for all 20 to get through each game). Thank you!

Heads up, Seven Up is the favorite around here: 7 people are chosen, every one puts their heads down, with heads on desks so they cant see and thumbs up, and the 7 people quietly go around and touch one thumb each and they put their thumb down. when they're done, someone says, 'heads up, seven up!" then the ones that got touched stand and try to guess who touched them If they're right, it's their turn, if not, the 'toucher' says who they got. The kids love this game somehow!

Im in girlscouts and we do games for all the younger kids and this is a game they all seem to love, So two teams are made, so 2 teams of 10 for you. One team sits and faces a wall or just closes their eyes, the other team each changes one thing about themselves(i.e.: untying a shoe , switching a jacket with someone, putting your shoes backwards) Then the team closing their eyes turns around a guesses what was changed( they get a chance to study them first) and then they switch, they really enjoy this.

Sparkle! In sparkle one person gives the others a word and they spell it. For example the word is tooth so the first person would say t the second o and so on. At the end of the word you say sparkle and the one that finishes the word the one person after that sits down. Go until the last person is standing and that is your winner!

ANOTHER IDEA!!! Hangman is always fun--you can think up phrases and let the kids guess, one at a time--theme related or whatever--this can be as controlled or not as needed.
