Promote peer communication with this whole-class game.

This teaching resource is a game that relies on students communicating through illustrating or describing an image. In this Broken Telephone style game, students need to articulate their observations to draw or describe what they see to ensure the next student gets the information they need.

This game begins with a prompt, and a student needs to draw or write about what they saw. Then, the next student needs to communicate what the previous student submitted and communicate to the best of their ability for the next student. Once all students have participated, the class compares the final submission to the original prompt and sees how the two compare.
