Get your children to put on their investigation hats to see if they can work out which adjectives match which animal using this set of 17 pair cards. .
We have used these cards in loads of different ways from a whole class activity to a child practicing their skills individually with a quick game, take them and be imaginative!
Here are a few ideas you may want to use:
- Ask the child to match the adjectives to the correct animal.
- Use the child to describe the animals using good adjectives, using the cards as prompts.
Individually place all of the cards flat down on the table. Take it in turns to turn over two cards, if they are the correct pair you get to keep them, if not you must turn them back over. The person with the most cards at the end is the winner.
- One child has all of the adjectives cards and the other has all of the picture cards. The child with the adjectives cards starts to read out the adjectives on at a time, once the other pair works out which animal they are describing they get to keep both cards. See how many adjectives do they need to be told to collect all of the cards.
- Give one card to each member of the class (you may need to duplicate some if you have a large card). They must walk around and find their matching card. We find this works well to bring a lesson to the end or to get the children out their seats and burn off a bit of energy!
