Which Bug is Buggin You?

To read this post in Italian, click here.

Here are some games you can play to learn bug names.  Print off 2 sets of these cards and you can play Memory or  Go Fish! With just one set of cards you can also play a type of Guess Who.

To play you will need:

  • 1 set of cards that have been laminated
  • small reusable stickers or dry erase pens
  • 2 or more players

The object of the game is to guess which bug has been chosen by asking yes or no questions.

1 person choose be the bug chooser and the other person or people will be the guessers.  The person who chooses the bug will place a sticker or a small x on the back of one of the cards (make sure the other player(s) don’t see which one. Younger kids might need to go into another room to do this).  That person places all the cards face up on the table.  The other players take turns asking yes or no questions to figure out which bug has been chosen. Such as does it fly?  If the answer is yes, all the cards with bugs that don’t fly are turned face down.  If the answer is no the cards with bugs that do fly are turned upside down. Players can only guess the bug on their turn. To avoid people constantly shouting out names, without trying to ask questions first, we do a penalty of -if a player guesses incorrectly they skip a turn. The first person to guess the correct bug wins.  That person becomes the next person to choose the bug.
