The Competition

Each student will compose and read their riddle to the class.

Each classmate will have 3 chances to guess at the riddle’s answer.  If the classmate does not answer correctly, he/she goes to the end of the line.

The first person to guess right gets a point and then gets to read his/her riddle to the line.

This will continue until everyone has a chance to read his/her riddle.  The person who guesses the most correct answers wins.
