What Is It? Games are colorful communication board games, by PCI's Janie Haugen-McLane. Each game covers 200 'What,' 'Who,' 'How,' 'Why,' and 'Where' questions about 40 common objects found in a classroom and in a house. These fun 'WH' games build students' receptive and expressive language skills.

How the Games Work
A student rolls the game die, moves a playing piece, and looks at the picture on the square he or she landed on. The other players ask, 'What is it?' If the student correctly identifies the object, for example, an eraser, he or she gets to spin to answer one of four additional 'WH' questions:

Who uses it?
How do people use it?
Why do people use it?
Where is it?

Scoring
Students who answer the first 'WH' question ('What is it?') correctly earn one point. If the second 'WH' question is answered correctly, a second point is earned. Reproducible score sheets allow players to keep their own score. The first player to reach 20 points wins.

Games Include
Game Board with 40 full-color illustrations
Spinner with four 'WH' questions
Teacher's Guide
Game Die
6 Playing Pieces

Teacher's Guide includes suggested answers, reproducible take-home study pages, and a reproducible score sheet.
