Animal Name Game

ages 4-6



Activity Detail

This is a fun and easy game to play in honor of Earth Day or any time! The object is to come up with as many names of animals who inhabit the earth as you can: You'll need at least 2 players with a strong grasp of the alphabet and some knowledge of spelling. The first player starts by saying the name of an animal, like monkey. The next player follows by coming up with an animal whose name begins with the last letter of his predecessor's pick. In this case, the last letter would be Y, so Yak would be a good response. You can choose who goes first by throwing dice to see who gets the highest number.

For younger ones, there are so many great alphabet books out there with animals, they could use them to help with ideas!

We play a game in the drs office called "I'm thinking of an animal". The cluer gives the guesser hints like fur, round ears, long tail, walks on all fours, lives in trees = monkey! kind of like "i spy".
