Kim's Game gets its name from the book Kim by Rudyard Kipling. Here is how it works.

1. Gather a variety of small objects such as a pen, a pencil. a paperclip, a button, a small book, a credit card, an action figure, a Lego piece (or two), a rubber band, several coins, a cookie and a playing card. Start with eight or ten objects, switching some out and adding more each round to make it more challenging.  Set the objects on a tray or a flat table and cover them with a scarf or a small towel. Do this before gathering players together.

2. Have players gather around the table where each can see the entire set up.

3. Remove the cover from the objects for 1 minute and then quickly cover them up again.

4. Give each player a pencil and paper and have them write down every object they can remember.

5. When everyone has had time to write, uncover the array of objects and let each person check his or her list.

6. Whoever remembers the most objects can set up the next round.

7. If you are feeling literary, try to find the chapter in Kim where Kim, the boy, plays this "game" with his boss at the bazaar to learn to identify jewels and read it aloud. Or see if this scene is in the movie of the same name, "Kim". I'm not sure if it is there or not.

My friends and I loved this game when we were children and I've played it with students to help develop skills of observation and memory.  Have fun. Stay safe.
