Product Description
This is a barrier game to help children learn to use precise wording to enable a listener to create a picture.

First model how to describe the picture so that another person can create a matching picture. Tell the students that they CANNOT point or say “Right there.” The goal is for them to give specific directions.

One student takes a completed Potato Friend Card. That student will describe or give the directions. The other student has the potato head mat and the pieces needed to complete the picture.

Select the number of pieces that would be needed to complete the task. If the task is to follow a simple direction, select only one item representing the feature (ex. one hat, one nose, etc.). If more than one feature is the target, select multiple examples (ex. the blue cap and the green cap; the red lips and the teeth; the girl’s hat and the man’s hat). A more complex level requires the use of directionality, angle, color, and/or position. (ex. Have the right arm pointing up and the left arm pointing down; Put the black hat on top of the potato head so that is covers part of his right eye.)
