Divide students into groups of two, each with a bag containing a number of different coins. The first person in the group selects a coin from the bag but keeps it hidden from their partner. Their partner must try to guess which coin has been selected by asking questions to gain clues on things such as colour, size and shape. Swap the groups around so everyone takes a turn at guessing and the clues given are varied.
