A variation on this could work but would require you to make little cards that say "Bill the farmer" etc.

You could have different 5 people each with 4 cards that each give different occupations/descriptions of each person.
The kids with the same person have to find the people with their person on their card by asking "Where is Bill?" ("he is here" if they have him, "he is not here" if they don't). Then "Who is Bill?" to find out all Bill's occupations.

Not sure if this is an exact match. But for our "who is ____?" lesson, we played "Famous People." I read out 4 or 5 sentences describing a famous person, and then I would ask "Who is it?" The kids had to respond "It's Barack Obama," or whoever. We did it with animals and Tokyo Tower, too.

Some examples:


Elephant

It is an animal
It is very large
It has big ears
It has a very, very long nose
It is gray
It is from Africa and India



Michael Jackson

He was American
He was a singer
He died last year
He sang “Thriller”
He sang “Bad”
His sister is Janet



Matsumoto Jun

He is Japanese
He is a singer
He is on many TV shows
He is a member of Arashi
He was in my favorite TV show
He was the star in Hana Yori Dango
