Susan Berkowitz’s Free Mystery Picture Hunt for Speech and Language

Speech-Language Pathologists devote a significant amount of time teaching students how to formulate adequate descriptions.  One game that I used to play in speech therapy when the kids needed a break from working on literature involved finding mystery items when described by their fellow students. 

One commercially available version of the game involves students asking and answering a series of descriptive questions to narrow down the options.   A version that I’ve made myself is less complicated. Students simply take turns choosing  an item in the complex scene and describing it by categorical, functional, qualitative and locative features until someone guesses what it is.

This is my Mystery Picture Hunt game.  I have a couple of versions in my TPT store, including this one which is free. So enjoy working on descriptions.
