To Kill a Mockingbird SNAP! loses none of the fun of the popular children’s game while reviewing useful literary content in groups of 2-5 players.

As in the traditional children's game, the object is to win all of the cards. In this game, however, students gain cards by matching facts and quotes about 7 characters: Scout, Jem, Dill, Atticus, Mayella Ewell, Tom Robinson and Boo Radley. Half of the 72 cards contain different facts and quotes on each of these characters. The other half contains the characters’ names.

Ways to win cards

1. The simplest way: when two identical character name cards are played consecutively. The student who spots this match first shouts out the character’s name, followed by SNAP!

2. When a name card is followed by a fact or a quote said by that character. The student who spots this match first shouts out the name, followed by SNAP!

3. When two consecutive cards are facts or quotes about the same character. This match takes the longest to work out. The student who spots this match first shouts out the name, followed by SNAP!

What you get in this resource:

9 pages of cards (8 cards per sheet, for a total pack of 72)

An optional back of card fun graphic (the back of the cards can be left blank)

An answer key that students can consult to solve any disputes.

How to prepare for the game:

Photocopy enough packs of cards for the number of groups that best suits your class. For a class of 24 you might play in 6 groups of 4, and would therefore need 6 packs.

Photocopy one answer key for the whole class

Give students scissors and they can cut the cards before commencing play.

The cards can be photocopied onto ordinary paper, but using cardstock would mean that they will last you until your retirement!
