We created these Preposition Cards as a fun and exciting way to let students learn and reinforce 7 basic prepositions without a lot of teacher oversight or instruction.
Here are the details about Preposition Cards:
A game lasts between 5 and 10 minutes and is perfect for beginner lessons.
Students must know how to read the English language to play this game.
This game works for groups of between 2 & 6 players. If you have a larger class, you’ll need to make multiple copies of the preposition cards.
The rules of this game are very similar to UNO. If your students already know how to play UNO, this game will be extremely easy to play in class.
Welcome to the Animal Preposition Card Game! Here are the instructions:
1. Game Setup:
- There are four animal suits: Rabbit, Pig, Kitten, and Duck.
- There are seven basic prepositions: In, On, Under, Next To, Between, In Front Of, and Behind. These prepositions are written in red.
- Download, print, cut out, and laminate the deck of Preposition Cards.
- Shuffle the deck and deal six cards to each player.
- Place the remaining cards face down to create a draw pile.
2. Determining the First Player:
- To determine who plays first, have a paper, rock, scissors battle among the players.
- The player who wins the battle becomes the first player.
3. Game Rotation:
- The game rotation starts clockwise, beginning with the player who won the paper, rock, scissors battle.
- Turn over the top card from the draw pile.
- Player 1 must try to match the animal, preposition, or use a special card indicated on the card.
- If Player 1 cannot make a match or use a special card, they must pick up a card from the draw pile and forfeit their turn.
- The next player in rotation must then attempt to match animals or prepositions with the card played by Player 1.
- The game continues until a player has only one card remaining.
5. Yelling the Prepositions:
- When a player has only one card left, they must yell out all seven prepositions in a row: "On, In, Under, Next To, Between, In Front Of, Behind."
- Failure to do so results in the player drawing two new cards.
6. Winning the Game:
- The first player to play all of their cards wins the game!
