Yes/No questions with can- Personalised Pelmanism Card Games
Instructions for teachers
Choose which set or sets of cards below you want to use and copy and cut up one set per 
group of two to four students. Ask students to spread the cards face down across the 
table. One student turns over two cards and asks 
“Can…?” questions related to or 
including those two things. If they get the same answer to both questions, e.g. two 
“Yes, 
she can” answers, they can keep both cards. If they get two different answers, they have 
put the cards back face down in the same places and play passes to the next person.
