Separate the kids into two teams. Then lay out the playing cards face down in a line in front of you with one card at the start of the line face up. Ask the teams different questions. Easier at first then harder as the game goes on. Each team that gets an answer right gets a chance to chose wether the card adjacent to the face up card is higher or lower. If the team guesses right then they get the points. If they guess wrong then they lose points.

Materials: 
Playing cards

True or False

Give each kid in the class a pair of True and False cards. You then proceed to ask the class questions about different things. Does an elephant have a tail? True or False?

Materials: 
Two cards on sticks, one saying True, one saying False for every student in the class.

Grab the animal

The teacher picks an animal. Then describes to the kids what kind of animal it is,(The animal I thinking of has 2 legs). After each "hint" the kids separate which animals relate and take out the ones that don't, eventually narrowing down to the animal that the teacher is thinking of.

Materials: 
Pictures of different animals. Roughly 15 or 20 different kinds.

The game is that you pass out the different sized sticks among the students. You then ask which person has the shortest stick in the group, the longest, or anywhere in between. For example the second longest stick or third.
\
The person who has the stick in their hand has to answer a question. How many legs does a chicken have?
\
What 2+2? And so on. Add points for right answers and subtract for wrong. Kid with the most points at the end of the game wins.

Materials: 
Sticks of different sizes from longest to shortest.

The idea of the game is to get pairs of objects that are used together, ie., spoon and fork, Ink and pen, paint and paintbrush and so on.
\

Materials: 
PP board with pictures of different objects that are used together on them.

First you separate the kids into teams using the different colored sets of the alphabet.
\
Then the teacher starts calling out different words for the teams to spell out.
\
The first team to spell the word correctly wins.

Materials: 
PP board lettered from A-Z. Preferably many sets and different colors, (around six or so for larger groups).
