Teach your students about the elements of art, the building blocks used to describe and create artworks. Included are 5 versions of a cootie catcher game, giving you the greatest amount of flexibility incorporating it into your art lessons and assessments. I use these elements of art fortune tellers as warm-ups at the beginning of the school year as well as a review at the end of the year. Another way to work them into your lessons is to have students define each vocab word as you introduce them throughout the year, building on the game until you have all the elements covered. And then play it!

Each game type includes a color as well as a black-and-white version. I use the color worksheet as a teacher copy and print copies of the black-and-white ones for students. Each game is labeled as “V1,” “V2,” and so forth at the end of the directions.

Students can work by themselves, in pairs, or at table groups to guess either the name of the element of art or its definition.
