Colours Brainstorming Games
Say a colour, a category of thing or a colour plus category of a thing, for example by
choosing a word or words from below. Go round your group brainstorming things that
match that with a sentence like “A strawberry is red”, “Strawberries are red” or “Red
strawberries” (your teacher will tell you which). If anyone repeats a sentence that has
already been used in that round, says something wrong, or pauses too long, they lose that
round and can choose the category for the next round. Your teacher will tell you how long
counts as pausing for too long is, e.g. if you should clap three times each time and say
something on the third clap or if you can count down from ten to one if someone seems to
be pausing for too long.

If your teacher tells you to, do the same but this time writing the sentences or phrases.
When you finish the game, brainstorm as many colour words as you can (including two-
word combinations such as “dark brown”).
