What's the Object?
Age Range: 7 to 11
This is a simple game which requires good describing skills. Children should be organised into teams (with approximately three children per team).
One child from each team should be given a card (see below for more details about cards). They should then try to describe what is on the card, but they are not allowed to use the words which are written on the card.
For example, if a child called Kate is given this card...
... Kate has to try to get the other members of the class (her own team mates are not allowed to join in) to say the word carrots. She is not allowed to say "carrots", "orange", "rabbits", or "Bugs Bunny" and so must think of other ways of describing carrots. The team which says "carrots" first gets one point for their team.
A child from another team is then given a card and has to describe the object on that card. Play can continue for as long as you like (as long as each team has an equal number of chances to describe the object). At the end, the points can then be added up to give a winning team.
Nine sets of "What's the Object?" cards (each with 8 cards on) are available for printing by clicking on the links below:
