In the tin: 60 cards, 1 target
A fun game to work on right-left orientation. Each card has six random statements on it. After hearing a statement, if the statement is true, slap the target with your right hand. If the statement is false, hit it with your left hand. When playing with a group, the first person to collect 10 cards by answering correctly wins the game.
A random sampling of the statements include:
- You are the tallest player here.
- I am wearing a watch on my right wrist.
- You have more brothers than sisters.
- I am not wearing a skirt.
- There is a clock hanging on a wall in this room.
- Hit the target with both hands, left hand first.
- My cell phone has rung during this game.
- Scan the card and present only the statements that are answerable and appropriate for the people in the room.
- Ask the individual who is asking the questions to hold the deck in his non-dominant hand and push the top card off with the thumb to separate.
- Increase the difficulty by using a timer to see how many questions can be answered in a minute. Is the player confident of right/left orientation, or are more mistakes made?
- Ask the player to answer the question verbally before calling him on using the wrong hand. Then ask if he used the correct hand.
