“I am/Who is” is a simple but effective review game that is easy to prepare and adapt for your classroom needs. Assemble the cards and play cooperatively or competitively.
Ideas & Variations
A. When first introducing content, let students work with a partner and/or use their notes to identify their organelle.
B. Ask students to come up with an alliterative adjective (i.e. Nerdy Nucleus) to recite or action to perform when identifying their organelle.
C. Cut along the dotted lines instead of folding so that the “I am” sides are separate from the “Who is” sides. Shuffle the “Who is” cards and assemble cards as usual.
D. Play several rounds, giving students different cards in each round. Time them and encourage the class to complete the set as quickly as possible.
E. Print and assemble several different variations of the full set. Divide students into groups and have them practice to get the fastest time.
F. Add your own related vocabulary to the game using the blank cards.
