Introductory Info :
- This Game's Premise: Imagination is used to describe a statue, personal opinions, and reactions with creativity.
- Educational Benefits: Descriptions using the senses, use of directional vocabulary.
- Three written prompts should be prepared ahead of time and put (folded up) into a hat or container.
- The written prompts should be what the status will look like [animals (real or made up), people (real or made up), other things (any)].
- The three people portraying statues should each take a random spot around the classroom.
- The background story is that 3 treasure hunters are out to find a treasure in a deep, dark, uncharted place (forest/jungle/island/etc.) together.
- As the three treasure hunters follow the map, they must make up instructions that the map says to follow.
- Instructions can include what direction to go (ahead, left, right, up a hill, across the river, etc.).
- Instructions can include how far they should go in each direaction (5 feet, 20 miles, etc.).
- Instructions can also use landmarks (go left at the statue, turn right at the big tree, etc.)
- While following the map, they come across 3 statues.
- Each time a statue is discovered, a treasure hunter pulls a written prompt out of the hat/container that tells them what the statue is of.
- That treasure hunter tells the audience what it is a statue of and what the person/animal/etc. in the statue is pictured doing.
- That treasure hunter also tells the audience how big the statue is and what the statue means.
- Each treasure hunter, after describing the statue, must react to seeing it..
- Each treasure hunter describes one statue.
- After the description of the statue is done, the treasure hunting group moves on (to the next statue).
- The game is over after all statues have been revealed and the treasure hunters find the treasure or continue on the path to find it.
- Change the number of statues and/or treasure hunters, let more than one treasure hunter describe each statue, alter the time limit, or have all of the statues picturing the animal/person/etc. in the middle of an action that the treasure hunters must describe.
