Climate Charades

What causes climate change? How can we stop climate change? Act out the causes and solutions for climate change in this game of climate charades!

  • What activities cause climate change?
  • How can we prevent climate change?
  • How will you organize your teams for the game?
  • How will you communicate your ideas without speaking?


  • Create a list of activities that cause climate change and a list of things we can do to prevent climate change.
  • Cut up your list so each idea is on a small piece of paper. Fold the pieces in half and put them in a hat or bag.
  • You can play the game in teams or as one big group.
  • Take turns picking a piece of paper from the bag and act out the activities while your teammates guess what you are acting out.


  • Did you discover any techniques that helped you to communicate with your teammates without speaking?
  • How did thinking about the causes of climate change make you feel? How did you feel when you were thinking about solutions?
  • What did you learn from this activity?
  • Remember to submit your activities on our Scouts for Sustainability Take Action Map


  • Pen
  • Paper
  • A hat or bag

Keep it Simple

  • Instead of playing in teams you can play as one large group. Have one person act out the activity while everyone else tries to guess.  

Take it Further

  • To make the game harder, add a time limit. Start a timer at the beginning of each round and try to guess the activity before the time runs out!
