    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
