How do my students play this ice cream word family activity?

Learners will pick up an ice cream cone, and identify the word family on it. They will then find the ice cream scoops that match the word family on their cone and place it on top. In this way learners will build up an ice-cream word family. They can record their responses in the recording sheet if required.
