Animals -  ESL Flash Cards Game Ideas and Tips

Animals are great for physical acting type games like charades or the drawing version similar to Pictionary.

Have a child take a card from the deck without showing other the other children. The student then has to physically move like the animal and other students guess what it is.

Variations:

  • Students make the animal sound.
  • Students draw the picture.

You can divide the class in teams and keep score or it can be a cooperative game where the entire class competes to guess all the cards as fast as possible. In this second game, you can use a timer so that the class can try to beat their previous fastest time.

TIP: Select students to be teacher for games. It can be a lot of fun and a great way for children to learn if they take turns playing the role of teacher. Children can learn from each other as well as the teacher.
