This is a classic card game of pairs.
It is designed for the students to practice describing animals.
The goal is to form and discard pairs of cards.
There are three sets of cards:
The first set has cards that describe animals (Vive en... / Come .../ Es ... Tiene .../ Da ... / Hace ...).
The second set has cards with pimages of the animals and the written Spanish word under the image.
The third set has only images of the animals, without the written word.

- Print the document one-sided, laminate and cut out the cards.
- The ideal number of players is 7 (4 cards for each student), but it will also work with 2 to 14 players. For bigger classes, you might want to print several copies.
- Distribute all the animal cards. You can choose whether to use the set with or without the Spanish names of the animals.
- Put the description cards face down in a pile. The teacher takes a description card and reads it out loud.
- The student who has the described animal, says its name in Spanish and gets the card to form a pair.
- After the students have played the game a few times, they will be able to take turns in reading the description cards themselves in pairs or groups.
