Variation 1 – Using your own skill cards, students answer appropriate questions. For each correct answer, give them a small pom-pom or sticker or any other items you have for them to decorate their mustache.
Variation 2 – Give each student a copy of a mustache. They imagine what they could make out of the mustache (not a tree – but, for example, a roller coaster, a porcupine). After they make their mustache into the object, students take turns describing their creation for their fellow students to guess.
