Barrier games have long been used by speech-language pathologists for developing language skills. Having a pair of students take turns giving and following directions develops concise directing and describing skills in a fun activity. Students learn to listen carefully, and the therapist/teacher is able to focus on scaffolding and teaching such skills as chunking and re-auditorization without having to simultaneously be giving the auditory input.
There are a lot of different ways to create barrier activities and many materials can be used.
This resource could also bee used to have students create faces with specific moods.
