Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 5 pages | Grades: 2 - 5

Hone in on your students' speaking and listening skills with this barrier activity.

This game is played in pairs, with the players separated by a barrier. One player is the speaker, and the other is the listener. Prior to beginning the game, the speaker colors their sheet. During the game, the speaker gives precise instructions to the listener who must listen carefully and color accordingly.

The goal is for the listener to produce work that is close to being identical to that of the speaker.

The coloring pages include:

  • a dragon
  • three ladybugs
  • two owls
  • two crocodiles.
