‘Which Song?’ This will be the name of a card game you will create on Marshmello’s songs. Think of 4 clues about his 6 most popular songs and write them on a card. See if a family member or friend can guess the song! Perhaps it could be a two player game and you could be the quiz master! Then whoever has the majority of cards at the end wins.

List 10 questions you would ask Marshmello if you got the opportunity to meet him. Try and answer them as best you can from watching/reading past interviews he has done.
