Playing The Game:
Spread out all picture cards facedown on the table in rows. The object of the game is for each player to locate all five pictures that match the five pictures on his/her caterpillar. Randomly choose a player to go first. Taking turns, each player turns over one picture card from the table, names the occupation and then tells what the worker does. If the picture matches one on his/her “CHATTY CATY” caterpillar board, it is placed on top of that picture, and play passes to the left. If it does not match one on the “CHATTY CATY” caterpillar board, the picture is turned face down again and play passes to the left. Play continues until one player covers all the pictures on his/her “CHATTY CATY” caterpillar board.
The winner is the player who covers all the pictures on his/her “CHATTY CATY” caterpillar board first or if time runs out the player with the most pictures covered is the winner.
