About This Activity
This activity takes minimal prep - just print the pages, cut them out and you have your own easy "board game". Take this board game to restaurants when you need to keep your children occupied, or take it out when you have a lazy weekend day at home.
This Monster Guessing game also involves describing and negation! In this activity, your child will start thinking identifying, labelling and describing attributes of their monster. They will also develop skills around categorization and grouping monsters that have similarities. They will need to ask questions about different categories of descriptors. For example, they will first need to ask about colours, then each of the facial features, and then what the monster is doing.
Our printable also includes a visual support guide for children who might need some help with knowing what questions to ask. The visual support guide separates out descriptors in the different categories to help them organize attributes.
