Product Description
Make several copies of the entire deck of cards (red and green). Group students into small groups (no more than 4). Give each group a deck of apples to apples cards, being sure to separate the red cards into one pile and the green cards into another pile.
Each student will get 3 red cards to place in their hard.
The student who's birthday is nearest will be the "judge" first.
The "judge" will draw one green apple card and lay it face up in the middle of the group. This card will be the main idea for the round. The remaining students will look at their red apple card to determine which sentence, or red card, would be the best supporting detail for this main idea. The "judge" will pick his/her favorite supporting sentence, or red card, from the stack. Whoever put that card down will win a point for the round. Even if a student does not have a red card that seems to match the main idea card, a card must be laid down.
The "judge" will rotate each round.
The winner will be the person with the most points at the end of the game.
Cards can be taken from the discard stack and recycled into the pile as needed.

Ex: Green Card- "Banana"
Winning Red Card- "Many people make smoothies with this delicious food choice."
