Can your students be senior language detectives? Use your language skills to detect the information and answer the questions. A brand new game and theme for your room! Our students often need to be detectives because all of the information isn't always readily available. Here is the perfect opportunity to work on these "detecting" skills. This is how it works: Print cards and laminate them. There are 4 card decks: inferences, predicting, cause/effect, and riddles. Each card deck can be differentiated by the border color. Also included is a page (8 cards) of wild cards, which may be duplicated (2-3 copies of the page) if using more than one deck at a time. Have students take turns selecting a card. They must be the "detectives" and answer the questions given on each card. If they do it correctly, they can keep their card. If not, they must put the card back in the pile. Make sure to not lose your detective gear, because you will also lose a turn! If you follow all of your
clues, you will get another turn! These wild cards
may be used for more fun. The person with the most cards at the end of the game is the Senior Language Detective (winner)!
