Sharing personal experiences functions card game

Rules of the game

The aim of the game is to get rid of as many of the cards you are dealt as possible before the teacher stops the game. Students do this by saying something with the function of the card that they lay down, e.g. asking “Have you ever…?” to be able to discard the “Questions about experiences” card. They should always use phrases which are at least a little different from what people in their group have said before. The other students can make them take the card back if what they said doesn’t match that function or if they have used a phrase which someone has used before.
