Fruits Guessing Game

Learn and practise new English words! In the guessing game, kids guess words letter by letter. There aren't picture clues in this activity.

  • If kids are new to the topic, or if they need some help with their spelling, introduce the vocabulary by using our Vocabulary Words list before playing the game.
  • Otherwise, they may find it quite difficult.
  • To start, click on the Guess the mystery word text.
  • The word to guess is represented by a row of yellow boxes (one box for one letter) at the top of the game board.
  • In the middle of the board there are ten strawberries that belong to the piglet.
  • At the bottom of the board you can see two rows of letters. Click on any letter that you think is in the word.
  • If the mystery word has this letter, it appears in the proper yellow box.
  • If you choose a letter that is not in the word, the piglet loses one strawberry.
  • Try to guess the word before our friend loses all the strawberries.
  • When you complete the word (no matter as a winner or loser), click on the Next word button to continue the game.
