A fun and easy activity for developing defining and describing skills
8 Describing reference cards
1 game board
2 visual cue cards
If desired, laminate the game board for durability.
Print, laminate, and assemble the shamrock spinner provided. Students take turns spinning the spinner. Have students select a picture on the game board that corresponds to the criteria on the spinner. For instance, if when spinning, the arrow points to “category” shamrock, the student finds a picture on the game board that asks for the category.
Students must express the detail indicated on each turn as it corresponds to their spin.
Each correct response is worth one point. The student with the most points at the end of the game is the winner.
Print the describing reference cards and give one describing reference card to each student. Laminate cards if desired for added durability.
**Printing suggestion: Be sure to select “scale to fit paper” in the print dialogue box.
