Giraffes Can't Dance Character Traits Game can be played with 1-2 players or played as a whole class. To play the game you select a character card and a character trait card. You then sort the character trait card under the correct heading. For example if I selected the character 'Gerald the Giraffe - at the beginning of the story' and the character trait clumsy I would place the character trait card clumsy under the yes heading. (see preview for example). I then select 7 more character traits and place it under the correct heading: yes or no. Once player 1 has had their turn they return the cards to the bottom of the piles and then it is player 2's turn.

Giraffes Can't Dance Character Trait Game Includes:

• 2 heading - yes/no

• teacher instructions

• 5 character cards - Gerald the Giraffe - beginning of the story, Gerald the Giraffe- end of the story, other animals - beginning of the story, other animals - end of the story and the cricket.

• 48 character traits cards

By playing this game regularly in class students will have a deeper understanding about character traits. This game also assists the teacher with class discussions about character traits and reasons why students believe a character has a particular character trait. Answers may vary with students as they have different beliefs and personal opinions.

Please see the preview for a closer look at some of the game cards.
