Verbal Charades

Choose one person to sit in front of the classroom with their back turned to their classmates. Present an object to the rest of the class. They must describe this object without saying its name directly to the one student at the front of the class. This student at the front must guess what the object is. You may want to limit the number of descriptions to 5 or 10 hints before they must give up.
