Product Description
Looking for a fun way to review adaptations with your students? They will have a blast playing spoons!

Number of players:

Materials needed:
score card, a deck of game cards, and 3 spoons

To be the first to collect 3 of a kind (word, definition & picture)

Decide how many vocabulary words you want to use for the game. You need a minimum of 4 words (1 word for each player). The more words you use, the more challenging the game will be. Find the words, definitions & picture cards for each of the words you are going to use and place all of the cards in a pile. Place the spoons in the middle where it’s easy for everyone to reach for them. Then, shuffle the cards & deal 3 to each player.

All 4 players will simultaneously choose 1 card from their hands & pass that card, face down, to the opponent on their left. Each person will then pick up the card he/she received from the opponent on their right. Each player can never have more than 3 cards in his/her hand at a time, which means that a player cannot pick up a new card BEFORE passing 1 to the left.

When a player collects 3 of a kind (a word, definition & picture card), as subtly as possible, he/she should take a spoon & place it in front of him/herself. When this happens, every other player must grab a spoon as quickly & quietly as possible.

What to do after each round:
The player that ends up without a spoon, must tell the player who first grabbed a spoon to prove that he/she has 3 of a kind. If the first player to grab a spoon does, in fact, have a matching set of cards (word, definition, and picture), the player without a spoon will have to add an “S” under his/her name on the score card. If the first player to grab a spoon does NOT have a matching set, he/she gets the “S” under his/her name instead.

The person to the left of the dealer should then grab all of the cards, re-shuffle, and start the next round.

Continue playing until one of the players spells the word SCIENCE. The first player to do this, loses.
