Nature Challenge Game

This is a game I designed to use the vocabulary studied with "Monkey Puzzle" by Julia Donaldson. First decide which characteristics rank first (for instance the animal that has the highest number of legs or eyes wins)
Deal the cards to the players. The players can't choose the cards they want to play. Each player takes their first card. The one whose turn it is decides which characteristic they will play with. Each player says what the characteristic of their animal is (It has four legs. / It can fly.) The one who has the 1st-ranking characteristic takes the cards of the others. In case some players are ex-aequo, the first player chooses another characteristic.
The player who ends up with all the cards wins. You can choose to make it shorter by set a time by which the game is over. Then the player with the highest number of cards wins.

The above downloadable teaching material is best suited for at Beginner (pre-A1) and Elementary (A1) level. It is aimed at consolidating CAN and Present simple tense in English, and is excellent for strengthening your class' Speaking skills. It centers around the vocabulary topic of Ability, Actions, Animals, Body parts and Numbers.
