Students compare the values for the animals' size, weight, and speed.
To start the game, shuffle and deal all the cards face down. Each player holds their cards so that they can see the top card only.

The player to the dealer’s left starts by reading out a category from the top card (e.g. Height, value 5) The other players then read out the same category from their cards. The one with the best or highest value wins, and that player collects all the top cards, including their own, and moves them to the bottom of their pile. It is then their turn again to choose a category from the next card.

If two or more cards share the top value or data is not available for that particular subject then all the cards are placed in the middle and the same player chooses again from the next card. The winner of the hand takes the cards in the middle as well.

The person with all the cards at the end is the winner.

The above downloadable printable is intended for at Elementary (A1) level. It is great for consolidating Comparison: Comparative adjectives and structures in English, and is excellent for strengthening your pupils' Speaking skills. It is about the theme of Animals.
