Simon Says Draw!

Leave a comment

This is a great listening & giving instructions activity. It’s also a bit of fun. 🙂
Without letting the students see your work, draw and call out instructions for them to copy. Try to make some instructions more specific than others. Also throw in a few instructions that don’t begin with ‘Simon Says’ to see how carefully the students are listening!

Eg – Simon says draw a large blue rectangle
– Simon Says to draw eyes towards the top of the rectangle
– Draw a yellow oval in the bottom right hand corner of the rectangle
– Simon says to draw orange spikes coming out from the top of the rectangle
– Simon says to draw a green triangle in the centre of the rectangle

When you’ve finished your drawing get everyone to reveal their pictures.

Who had the same picture?
Who didn’t?
Discuss which instructions were the easier or hardest to follow & why.

This can also be done as a partner barrier game or in small groups.
