Right or Wrong?
FOR OR AGAINST?
There are 2 sides to every story…
One person in the group takes a card from the ‘picture’ pile (white cards),
and a card from the ‘connectives’ pile (green cards). Using this picture and this
connective the player must form an ‘explaining’ sentence. For example:
= England lost to Portugal in the Quarter Finals of the World cup,
consequently David Beckham has resigned as England Captain.
After the first player has completed their sentence, each of the
remaining players must choose a different‘connectives’ card and make
a sentence using the same picture. Then change picture and start again!
