Game + Critical Thinking = Mystery Animal!

Are you looking for an activity to help develop your students critical & logical thinking? Have an interest in animals? How about promoting clear speaking, taking turns, reasoning, and putting clues together to solve a "mystery"? Then you HAVE to check out Mystery Animal. 

Similar to 20 questions, you can ask up to 20 yes-or-no questions to identify the mystery animal. 

I've played this with students in the classroom and my own girls at home. I start out whole group and we brainstorm questions. Then we take turns asking, pausing to reflect/review what we've learned and decide when the right time is to make our guess. 

*** BONUS ↦ use index cards to write out questions to help students keep track of answers. (great for the little ones) Older students can devise their own information collection tool (blank paper works really well). Hold onto index cards for repeated play.
