Beach Ball Toss
1. Take a medium or small beach ball; Inflate and write the following on each panel or section of the ball with permanent marker:

    a. Who?

    b. What?

    c. Where?

    d. When?

    e. How?

    f. Why?

2. Read the whole or a portion of a text—fiction or non-fiction.
3. The Player tosses the ball into the air and catches it with both hands. He or she then looks to see the questions touched by each thumb, selects one, and answers the question. For more than one player, the ball is tossed to another player who after answering the question tosses the ball to the next player.
4. Points can be awarded to determine a final score.
Note: If the player is playing alone and the answer is unknown or thought to be incorrect, the player may refer to the text or passage to find the correct answer. This game works well with a variety of different subjects and applications.
