Play this game by allowing the student to draw a card from the shuffled deck. After reading the word on the card, they then choose 2 words from the list that mean almost the same thing and explain how they differ from the original verb.

You may also decide to have the children act out the words to add some physical activity to the game.

Have the student draw a card from the deck and choose which listed word best describes the picture. The game is set up so that you can choose to accept either answer as shades of meaning are up to interpretation.

Once an appropriate answer is given ask the student to either define or act out (where possible) the adjective.

This fun jungle theme is appropriate for use all year round and printable instructions are provided for each activity.
