Product Description
Looking for a fun way to address categorical concepts and context clues? Well, look no further!

This game, perfect for students in grades 1-4, provides you with the opportunity to target multiple skills (vocabulary, inferring, and pragmatics) in a fun, engaging manner! Each card depicts 3 members in a category—students are expected to “converge” the terms in order to identify the group . . . but be warned, the first word in each series is tricky! See if your students can name the category, and in doing so, figure out what that first word might mean!

32 Category Cards
7 Game Cards
1 Blank Card

Game Directions:
Cut apart cards. Select those that complement the skill levels of your students and place, face down in a pile, on the table.

Students take turns selecting cards and responding to prompts.
Emphasis should be made on the less familiar word (first in the 3 word set), as the other 2 terms will help determine its category (and meaning).

Students who draw a “Hall Pass” card get to skip a turn.
The student with the most cards at the end of the game is the winner.
