Animal Alphabet Game

While you work on Earth Day crafts projects, try playing this animal alphabet game.

This is a game for two or more people. It will help you remember different kinds of animals -- and maybe help you learn a few more!

Count off to decide what order you will play in. Player one thinks of an animal, such as elephant. Elephant ends with the letter T, so player two must think of an animal that begins with the letter T.

Any animal will do, including insects, sea creatures, mammals, reptiles, birds, even dinosaurs and other creatures that once walked the earth. But you can use an animal only once!

When the last player thinks of an animal name, the first player must think of an animal that begins with the last letter. If you want to make the game harder, play only sea creatures, land dwellers, or birds.

Now you can play another game, this time with the insect world. Learn more about your favorite creepy crawlers by drawing their pictures and taking your artwork to the library to look up more information.
