Playing with language

Hi there,
today I am going to talk about riddles, but do you know what are they?
Riddles are descriptions or questions with a hidden answer.
Students love guessing and language games.
Personally, I use them in my lessons because students have fun and they reinforce writing and reading.
However, introducing riddles with very young children is not always easy.
For that reason, I chose a book to introduce the language game.
After reading them and make children to guess the answers, I pushed them to design a riddle. However, as very young children don't have resources to write, I decided they could draw. Here you have the template.

In this way, they could create their own riddle. After that, we were guessing the asnwers by groups.
