Some terms covered are:

          An alien that looks like an octopus.

          An alien that talks like a duck.

          A creature that swims like a fish.

          A planet that has rings like Saturn.

          A vehicle that drives like a car.

          A creature that flies like a butterfly.

          A spaceship that looks like a shark.


You can use the game Fish or memory to practice this game. Fish goes likes this:



A: Do you have an alien?

B: Yes, I do.

     (Or No, I don't. Go fish. A takes a card from the deck)

A: Does it look like an Octopus?

B: Yes, it does.

     (Or No, it doesn't. Go fish. A takes a card from the deck)


If the answer was yes, B gives the card to A and A gets a point.
