find the punchline

Work together to match jokes to their punchlines.

Prep time: 10 minutes

Activity time: 15 minutes



A pencil



Write your jokes and punchlines on separate pieces of paper.

Give each maker a piece of paper containing either a joke or a punchline.

The makers should walk around the room trying to find the other half of their joke.

Once makers have found their partner they can sit down together.

When all of the makers have found their partners, they should take it in turns to read out the complete jokes.
