Interests and careers
  PLP activity

Review instructions with your group.  When everyone is finished with the initial activity, students can play 20 questions (must be yes or no questions only)  and try to guess each student's profession. 
1. Choose one student to go first
2. The other students each get to ask one question
3. After the last student has asked a question, the group guesses the job.  (or before if it is pretty obvious)

Sample questions:
Do you need a four year degree?
Do you make more than $40, 000 a year?
Do you need to have an artistic talent?
