To play the game, pass out one card to each student. Students may share cards or have more than one card, depending on your class size.
The student who has the START card will read first. The student who has the answer will say, "I have ____; who has ______?" The game continues until you reach the END card.
Each game is color-coded for easy storage.
120 total cards, including 8 blank cards so you can add your own categories.
These make great activities for a substitute teacher or to fill five minutes at the beginning or end of class! “I Have . . . Who Has?” is also a great way to practice reading, speaking, listening, and intrapersonal skills such as listening stamina and self-control.
Students who finish early can play "solitaire" by putting all the cards in order.
The terms and definitions in this game are based on the following two products:
Study Guide: Author's Craft and Literary Devices
Study Guide: Elements of Poetry
