Bundle - Tacky the Penguin - character trait sorting, cut and paste activities, yes/no game, task cards, fact or opinion and nouns, verbs and adjectives sorting center.


This yes/no game can be played with 1-2 players, small group or played as a whole class. To play the game you select a character card and a character trait card. You then sort the character trait card under the correct heading. For example if I selected the character 'Tacky the Penguin' and the character trait strange I would place the character trait card strange under the yes heading. (see preview for example). I then select 7 more character traits and place it under the correct heading: yes or no. Once player 1 has had their turn they return the cards to the bottom of the piles and then it is player 2's turn.

The game consists of:

• 2 heading - yes/no
• teacher instructions
• 3 character cards for main characters in the story - Tacky the Penguin, His Companions, The Hunters
• 52 character trait cards

By playing this game regularly in class students will have a deeper understanding about character traits. This game also assists the teacher with class discussions about character traits and reasons why students believe a character has a particular character trait. Answers may vary with students as they have different beliefs and personal opinions.

Please see the preview for a closer look at some of the game cards.
