  • 10 Cool School Bus Games

2
  • While travelling for a whole hour in the school
    bus, to school or back to home students tend to
    get bored.
  • As a result, they get noisy, pull pranks on other
    students or even disturb the school bus driver.
  • While entertaining themselves, the students do
    not realize that they are putting school bus
    safety at stake.

1. I spy
  • Any number of students can play this game, a
    minimum of two players are required.
  • Students can take turns in spotting something
    inside or outside the bus. They can then give
    clues so that others can guess the thing they
    spotted.
  • For example, a student can say, I spy something
    beginning with c. The clue can be vague so that
    the student can keep other students from
    guessing.
  • To play fair, the student has to mention the
    object they spy to another student. This can
    prevent them from changing the object later.
  • The person who guesses it right can be the spy
    next.
  • During the game, students are really busy and
    watching, challenge them to a game of I Spy!

2. Trivia
  • You can play trivia games with students that are
    related to travel or general knowledge.
  • Students can raise their hands to answer the
    questions.
  • This can also be played in teams.
  • Two students can sit together to form a team and
    answer the questions.
  • Every team that answers right will be rewarded
    with points.

3. Verbal charades
  • Write down phrases or words on pieces of paper
    and put them in a bag.
  • Each student can take turns to select a piece of
    paper from the bag.
  • They can then give verbal clues to other students
    so that they can guess the word or phrase.
  • The primary objective of Verbal Charades is to
    teach vocabulary, the game also improves
    interaction and instills confidence in learners.

4. Alphabet game
  • Students can try to complete whole alphabet in
    order by locating words outside the bus that
    starts with the letter.
  • The word can be on a billboard, another vehicle,
    road signs or shops.
  • When the second player locates the next letter,
    they can shout the word they see.
  • This can be a group effort or you can make it
    competitive if you want.

5. 10 fingers
  • Each student can begin a sentence with Never
    have I ever and end it with something they have
    never done.
  • Others in the group who have done the action can
    then put a finger down.
  • The first person who runs out of fingers loses.
  • For example a students can say, Never have I
    ever eaten an apple. Everyone who has eaten an
    apple can put their fingers down.

6. Name game
  • This is another interesting game which starts
    with a student choosing a name that starts with
    the letter A.
  • The next person repeats the A name and adds a
    name that starts with B. 
  • The third player repeats the A and B games
    and adds another name that starts with C.
  • For example, by the time it is the fourth
    players turn, the name will be
    AbbyBobChrisDon.
  • If a student misses a name in between, they are
    out of the game. The game continues until only
    one player survives.

7. Licence plate game
  • This is a very simple game.
  • Students can note the licence plate numbers of
    nearby vehicles and guess which state the
    vehicles belong to.
  • While playing this game, be careful that you do
    not put your head and arms outside the window.

8. Tic Tac Toe
  • This may be a bit tough to play in a moving bus.
  • But, it is an option when there is nothing left
    to play.
  • All you need are two players, a piece of paper
    and a pencil.
  • The first player can place an X in the grid and
    player two can place an O.
  • The players can take turns until one player has
    three across.

9. Hangman
  • This is another interesting game where a student
    leaves underscores instead of writing out a word,
    name of a person or a place, a title of a book or
    a movie etc.
  • The second player has to guess one letter at a
    time.
  • For every incorrect guess, the first player draws
    parts such as head, limbs and body on the hangman
    scaffold.
  • The second player loses when the dead body is
    complete.

13
10. Antakshari
  • This is a popular Indian game.
  • The word Antakshari means the last letter in
    Hindi.
  • Players can divide themselves into two groups.
  • A player in a group can sing the first four lines
    of a song.
  • Now, the second group has to sing a song starting
    with the first letter of the last word of the
    song that the other team sang.
