How to Play

  • Students play this game in pairs.

  • Each pair gets one spinner and two Twister sheets (one per student).

  • For this game, students take turns spinning the paperclip on the spinner.

  • When the paperclip stops, they look at the finger and color it's pointing to.

  • They then choose a circle with the same color as what they spinned on their game sheet by reading the word/sentence in the circle.

  • Both students put their fingers on that circle.

  • Then, their partner spins and the game continues until a person's finger moves off a circle or they can’t reach the next circle.


  • The instructions above are for the reading version of this game. If you want to use it as a  speaking activity, use images instead of text in the circles on the Twister sheets.
