Introduce game: Who named all the animals? Adam. Let’s see if we can name some animals.
Name the Animals ABCs
Call on a student and ask them to name an animal that starts with the letter A. Go through each letter of the alphabet and have the students name an animal. To make it harder make it a memory game. Have the players seated in a circle. The first player begins by naming an animal that starts with the letter A. The next player says the animal that starts with A and adds an animal that starts with the letter B. It continues until the whole alphabet is said using animal names. If a player mixes up the list or can’t think of a name of an animal, he/she is out. (You can also help the player if necessary so anyone can play.)
