Go For The Gold

So I have been loving all the games like my "Ants In Our Pants" I posted previously.  I love it when the request more educational games!  I decided to create a game to use with two different targets.  Introducing..."Go for the gold!"  I placed all the coins into a bag or cup and students take turns picking a gold coin.  If they answer correctly they can put the coin on their "pot."  But watch out for those sneaky leprechauns!  If they pick one they must put all the coins back and start over!

I made this game in two versions - Adjectives and Wh- Questions

Go for the Gold - Adjectives:  When students pick the coin, they must name something that can be described using that adjective.

Go for the Gold - Wh Questions: When students pick the coin, they must answer the questions correctly in order to "keep" the coin.

This is a fun and motivating way to work on these difficult target concepts while using St. Patrick's Day vocabulary.

  2. Thanks for the great share! I can see myself using this for sure!
