Old Bear - Young Bear
Students will be able to match definitions with bear vocabulary words and play a survival game.
Students play a game using word/definition cards with a set of rules for play.
- Cover general rules
- Object to make matches and get rid of cards to avoid getting points
- Establish a dealer
- Pass the deal after each round
- Limit play time
- Until someone reaches 100, or at the end of specific time period
- Player with the lowest points wins
- Matches can be made and placed on the table during player's turn only, except after the initial deal
- Shuffle and deal all cards (number received will vary)
- Examine cards for matching pairs. Lay pairs on table, face up, and read to the group for an accuracy check.
- Play resumes with the person to the left of the dealer. He/she draws a card from the person on his/her right. If a match is made, the cards are placed face up and read again.
- Play continues clockwise until someone has depleted his hand by making matches.
- Each person with cards left counts and tallies his points.
Old bear = (+ 13) Young bear = (-5) Unmatched cards = (+1)
Use cards to play other games such as Concentration, Rummy, others designed by students.
