Use this fun (and sometimes silly) game to get students using adjectives and seeing how they can change the meaning of a sentence. You can see how many different adjectives your students can think of or let them use the 20 adjectives that are included. With the interactive version, your students can drag different adjectives from the bottom box to the sentences and see how they change the meaning.
To use this as a naming adjective game with individual students, you can set a goal of how many different adjectives they can think of (e.g., 3 or 5 adjectives per sentence).
To play with a group:
- Divide the students into 2 teams. (You can have more teams if your group is particularly large.)
- A student from one team reaches into a bag or bowl and pulls out a game card. That team completes the sentence on the card with as many different adjectives as possible, earning a point for each one.
- The second team then gets to come up with appropriate adjectives not previously given to earn bonus points.
- The second team then picks their own card and gives as many answers as possible before allowing the first team to add extras for their own bonus points.
- Continue playing in this manner.
