This game is similar to “20 Questions.” It was designed to help your students practice asking yes/no questions, answering yes/no question, listening for details, and making simple inferences. There are tons of visuals included to help non-readers play the game more independently.
How to Assemble:
1) Cut out the pages on pages 4-9 (Cut out the entire page-not the individual pictures or sections). There is a cover page and 5 pages of content.
2) Laminate the pages for extra durability
3) Punch holes along the left side of the pages
4) Use binder rings to hold the pages together
5) Cut apart the animal cards and paper bag cards on pages 10-13. There are 36 different animal cards included.
How to Play:
1) Have one student choose an animal and hide it under one of the paper bag cards
2) Have another student choose a question from the book to ask. You can encourage students to go through the pages in order or let them choose whichever page they want to start with.
3) Have the first student answer the question about the animal he/she has chosen. You can use the yes/no visuals on pages 14-17 to help him/her answer the questions. I have included several different visuals so that you can choose the one that works best for your students.
4) Continue asking and answering questions until the second student is able to guess what animal is hidden under the bag. You can keep track of how many questions the student asks if you want to.
5) You can use the visual on page 19 to help your students keep track of key info about the animal.
