A set of four colouring pages to be used as speaking and listening activities.
This barrier game is played in pairs, with the players separated by a barrier. There is a speaker and a listener. Prior to beginning the game, the speaker colours their sheet. During the game, the speaker gives precise instructions to the listener who must listen carefully and colour accordingly.
The goal is for the listener to produce work which is close to being identical to that of the speaker.
The colouring pages include:
- three cute teddies
- five crazy monsters
- three deliciously-different cupcakes
- three contrasting fish
