I put this game together for my 7th-8th grade class on Sunday. There’s two variations to it.
Quick version for large groups
Have everyone grab a partner and spread out around the room with a piece of paper and a pencil. Instruct them to list the numbers 1 through 25 down the left side of the paper. Then play the mp3 file below. The team who identifies the most movies wins chocolate bars or something. I intentionally made most of the clips pretty easy, but you could always play it again to give them a chance to fill in any blanks they missed.
Downlaod the answer sheet
Long version for smaller groups
Split the group into two teams. On a big sheet of paper, overhead projector, whiteboard, or something similar, draw a big Connect Four or Tic-Tac-Toe chart. Play one audio clip. The first team to correctly identify the movie is awarded one move of their choice on the board. Play another audio clip and again award the first team who correctly identifies the movie with a move on the board. Repeat until one team wins Connect Four or Tic-Tac-Toe. If you still have a lot of movie clips left, feel free to play again until they’re all used up.
If you want more movie audio clips, simply Google something like “movie audio clips” and download to your heart’s content. (Yes, this is completely legal.)
