Divide the class into pairs. Give each pair a Worksheet of game cards to colour in and carefully cut out. Shuffle the cards and place them face down in a pile on the table.
To guess the picture on the card by asking as few Yes or No questions as possible – therefore gaining maximum points.
How to play
- Player A picks up a card and looks at the picture on the card and the word underneath it. Player A must not read out the word.
- Player B then tries to guess what the picture on the card is by asking questions. But Player B can only ask questions which will have a Yes or No answer. If Player B asks a question that cannot be answered with either Yes or No, Player A should remain silent. The questions can be as simple or as complex as your pupils can manage.
- If Player B guesses the picture on the card in under 8 questions they receive three points, 8–12 questions they receive two points, over 12 questions they receive only one point.
- Players then change roles so that Player B holds the picture card and Player A asks questions.
- The game finishes when all the cards have been used.
The winner is the player with the most points at the end of the game.
Use the three blank cards at the bottom of the worksheet to make additional cards or let the pupils choose three things they can see in the classroom or outside ie trees, birds, and ask them to draw them in the blank cards. Go around and help the children with English words to write above their pictures.
