Get one SS to stand at the front of the room, the teacher will stand behind them and hold up a picture of a place in the haunted house e.g. kitchen, bathroom, garden. -The SS must then tell the SS what was there yesterday e.g. There were stools. There were books, There was a fountain. They must not say the place. -The SS in the middle of the class cannot turn around or look at the picture, they must guess the place I was in.
