These detectives use clues to figure out the words being described. Instructions are included how to introduce the activity including vocabulary words students may not be familiar with, advance to a memory game where students try to figure out the clues and identify which cards they have in their hand.
Complete a case file on a Tier 2 vocabulary word by using semantic features to solve the case.
The final activity expands the lesson and the students’ own descriptive language skills as they take turns using their newly learned descriptive abilities on each other!
I developed this activity with my PreK and Kinder kids in mind but knowing that it will also be effective for lower elementary aged or life skills students.
I think I will use this in the next couple of days with my kids since we targeted descriptive language in our sentence building activity earlier in the week.
