Reading Skills: Identifying the Author's Purpose
Experience the adventure of author's purpose! Players read about animal antics and decide if the author is trying to persuade, inform, or entertain them.
Easy directions allow for more learning time!
As players track paw prints around the board, they visit an array of interesting animal friends: a gorilla persuading them to save the rain forest, an octopus using a recipe to whip up a tasty pie, and an entertaining bear telling his fishing story. When players land on Story Card spaces, they must put their knowledge of persuasive, informative, and entertaining writing to the test to move them closer to the end of the trail. The first player to reach the Finish space and correctly answer a Story Card wins the game!
