What educators are saying

My ESL students needed to increase vocabulary during their regular class science lessons on animals as well as be able to practice speaking. This resource helped with both. Thanks!
I loved this and the students did too! I'm hoping to purchase the entire ESL Bundle for next school year!

This animal guessing game is a great activity to get your students speaking and listening by describing common animals using vocabulary from the following categories: Color, body parts, action verbs, adjectives and places. Using the hints, your students will have a blast guessing the animal!

Sometimes it's difficult for students to organize their vocabulary words in order to accurately describe an animal. For this reason, I've included a student brainstorming worksheet where words can be brainstormed and written down before the activity or as a homework assignment the day before.

Included in this set there is also flip book where word "hints" are provided in case they get stuck and don't know how to describe the animal or students are doing the activity on their own in groups without the help of a teacher. It's a great “Ice breaker activity" and is also a fantastic way to review vocabulary. This game is always a hit in my ESL classes.

What's included in this download:

  • 20 different animal "What am I?" cards
  • Descriptive Vocabulary Brainstorming Worksheet
  • B & W flap book
  • full color flap book
  • "Cover it" game Board with all 20 animals
