ReadWriteThink: What’s in the Bag?

From site:

A great language activity, “Guess What’s in the Bag” focuses on speaking, listening, and problem-solving skills. Whole-class participation allows students to use their imagination and frees them to play with words as they describe hidden objects, hear clues, and tap prior knowledge.

But this is not only an in-school “exercise”; it is ideal for parents and siblings to play along at home or while traveling. “Guess What’s in the Bag” adds to and reinforces children’s vocabulary as well as their meaning-making skills—learning, and learning through, language.
