When God confounded the language of the people at the Tower of Babel in Genesis 11 each had to find others who spoke his or her language to be able to work together and build their communities. Various languages are still spoken throughout the world today. The animal world also has different languages. This activity can be used to group partners for games and puzzles. Let each person pick an animal name out of a hat. Without showing others his/her secret identy, each must find the members of his/her animal family only by "talking" as that animal. No words are allowed, only animal sounds. For more fun go to Tower of Babel.
Cut out the animals names according to the number of guests to have 2, 3, or 4 in each group.
