Mad Libs Activity
Stories are written with a few blank spaces. A hint for the word needed in the blank space is given i.e. adjective, adverb, noun, etc.
The Reader selects a story. He keeps the story secret and asks the Writer for words to fill in the blank.
Reader: "I need an adjective."
When all the blanks are filled with words, then the Reader reads the story.
"___(exclamation)____!" he said ____(adverb)____ as he jumped into his convertible ____(noun)____ and drove off with his ___(adjective)___ wife.
"Ouch! he said stupidly as he jumped into his convertible cat and drove off with his brave wife.
Is this story silly? It's based on your team creativity. The goal is to have fun. Silly is memorable.
