It's Mine! - What's in the box?
In each box there is an animal from It’s Mine! Can the children guess the animal before they open the box?!
This game is great for teaching then practising the animal vocabulary. See some ideas below.
- Memory challenge – Tap the settings icon in the bottom left hand corner. Click ‘Show all tile backs’. Reveal the animals one by one, getting the children to repeat and do actions each time. Alternatively, get the children to choose the leaves to flip over. After they are all revealed, flip them back. Can they remember what is where?!
- What’s Missing? – Get the children to turn around. Press ‘eliminate’ on one of the tiles. Can they identify what’s missing?
