Category Detectives is a 26 page activity pack that includes a matching game, a game board, and game cards. There are multiple ways these activity cards can be used, but below is how I use them:
Pages 3-17 is a matching game activity. Your students' mission is to match the magnifying glass with the corresponding notepad. I like to play this game like concentration/ memory. Decide how many categories you want to use, then place all the cards face down and have the students take turns flipping 2 over at a time as they try to find a match!
Page 18 includes a game board for The Category Detective Game! The game includes 40 task cards. The task cards either have students name the category or name items that fit in the category.
Print out and laminate the cards. Have students take turns answering a task card as they move around the game board. Each correct response allows you to move ahead 1 space (or you could use dice)
Mix these bonus cards in with the task cards to make the game a little more fun!
Blank note cards are also included so you can create you own game cards based on your students needs!
