A game for more advanced students who can think critically and form basic and different questions.
I have a box of plastic foods such as fruits, meats and a box of plastic animals.
I have the student pick an item (just choose, not take) and then I ask them “yes” or “no” questions. We both look in the box so the child can see their options (they may not know many English names for the items, but it helps when they can see them.)
Is it big? No
Is it red? Yes
Is it meat? No
Is it sweet? Yes
Is it a fruit? Yes
Is it a cherry? No
Is it an apple? YES!
And if you really like this game, there’s a great program that claims to be able to guess anything within 20 questions. I’ve spent a few hours trying to stump the computer http://www.20q.net/
This game goes well with I Spy
