how to play

  • Put task cards in three piles ( a yellow pile, a green pile, and a blue pile) face down.
  • Take a turn by flipping a coin (heads = move 1 space; tails = move 2 spaces).
  • When you land on
    a yellow square - pick up a card from the yellow pile, then use the picture to make a positive sentence, for example, I like apples. Each correct answer gains one yellow point;
    a green square - pick up a card from the green pile, then use the picture to make a negative sentence, for example, I don't like apples. Each correct answer gains two green points;
    a blue square - pick up a card from the blue pile, then use the picture to make a question, for example, Do you like apples? Each correct answer gains three blue points.
  • If you are right, don't move. Write down your score. At the end of the game, add them up for your total score.
  • If you are wrong, move back one space.
  • The player with the highest score is the winner.
