-Military Colored Cards: Each color corresponds to one attribute(the military figure on the card is just for decoration!)
-American Flag for collecting
-12 picture cards for describing (Veterans/American theme)
-Chart- Description of each color
Print and laminate 2 copies of page 2. Laminate and cut apart each square. Stack in a pile.
Print 1 copy of pages 3 and 4. Laminate and cut apart cards on page 4, stack in a pile. The chart does not need to be cut.
Print 3-4 copies of page 5 (however many you need for a group, so each student gets one). Laminate.
Give each student an American flag mat and place the chart, picture cards, and colored cards (each in a pile, face-down) in the middle of the table.
The first student will draw a picture card, read the word, and then pick a colored card. The card picked contains a colored dot that corresponds to an attribute. The student will describe the object on their picture card using that attribute. For example, if the student chose the picture card with the army soldier, he would next choose a colored card. If the card chosen had a blue dot, he would look at the chart and see that he needs to tell what a soldier does (blue= do)- fights, defends our country, etc. The student places the colored card on his American flag if he answers correctly. Have students pick as many colored cards per picture as you want- typically my goals for students are to name 3-4 attributes for a given picture, so I would have the student draw 3-4 colored cards for each picture, per turn.
If a student draws the same color for one picture (i.e. draws green two times while describing a soldier), he may put that card back and draw again.
Game continues. The winner is the student with the most colored cards on his/her flag!
Thank you Veterans!!!
