This is a collection of 27 sets of cards. In each set one card has the person’s name, and the other card describes the person. They are presented on the sheet with their correct matches, so you may want to keep a copy for your key. You can use these sets several different ways with your students. I suggest you print these on card stock. Another option instead of card stock is to cut them out and glue them to black construction paper, as I did. I then laminated them so they can be used for several years.
Here are some suggestions on how you can use these cards:
Play a matching game, putting the cards face down students try to match the person with their description, just like in the game of concentration. If you choose to do this I suggest cutting the stack in half. One game would have 13 matches and the other 14. This would allow two games to be used at once, and make it a little less challenging.
Pass out the cards with the names ,and you read the descriptions. Students listen and call out their person when they hear the description.
Scramble: Cut the stack into even sets. Place the scrambled set in front of two separate teams. The first team to successfully match their cards correctly wins.
Go Fish: Use all the cards and have two to three players. Students try to collect matches, as in the original game of “Go Fish”.
These are just a few ways to use the cards, you will probably have several ideas of your own.
