This game works best during whole group after students have studied collective nouns. Each student is given a card to stick into their headbands. They are also given a student answer sheet containing all their classmates' names. The students get to walk around the room, look at the cards on each other's heads, and write the correct collective noun onto their answer document.
1) Laminated sentence strips using velcro or paper clips for card attachments.
2) (MY FAVORITE) Purchase a class set of those cheap stretchy thin headbands. Students just slip the cards into them to hold them in place. You could even buy those cheap individual plastic containers from the Dollar Tree to separate them all.
