The Game Cards All the vocabulary used in these games are names of items found around the house. The cards in this book illustrate 86 different words, each on two cards (172 cards). To add interest, the two illustrations of each word are different. The entire list of 86 lexical items is subdivided into 9 sub-sets. (See page v.) These cards can be used for a variety of activities and games, and they can be used for play in virtually any language because the lexical items are pictured without written words on the cards. Of course, if an illustrated item is not known or recognized in the target culture and language, it need not be used. To supplement the 86 words, 40 additional vocabulary items are pictured (pages 173 and 175). To make pairs of cards, photocopy and cut the pictures out, and paste them on blank cards.
