Scenario Sorting Race

Instructions

SET UP

  1. Decide whether to play the Scenario Sorting Race as individuals or in small groups.
  2. Decide whether to use categories or subcategories when sorting the scenario cards.
    Sorting the scenarios by category is more straightforward and will take a shorter
    period of time than sorting the scenarios by subcategory.
  3. Print one deck of category cards or
    subcategory cards (depending on which deck
    you decided to play with). These cards can be printed from your computer and cut
    out (preferably using a paper slicer).
  4. Print one deck of scenario cards for each individual (or small group). These cards
    can be printed from your computer and cut out (preferably using a paper slicer).
  5. To speed up the game, especially if sorting the scenario cards, each player (or
    small group) can sort 15–20 scenario cards rather than all of them.
  6. Each player (or small group) should have:
    a. a deck of scenario cards, and
    b.
    a deck of category or subcategory cards (depending on which deck you decided to
    play with)
  7. Each player (or small group) should shuffle the scenario cards and place them
    face down.
  8. Each player (or small group) should place each of the category or subcategory
    cards (depending on which deck you decided to play with) face up in a row so they
    are all visible.

PLAY!

  1. When the facilitator says to begin, the player (or small group) reads each scenario
    card, decides which category/subcategory it best describes, then places it on the
    appropriate card. If the scenario fits into more than one card, select the better
    fit and place it on that card.
  2. As each player (or small group) completes their task, keep track of the order of
    completion. Wait for all players (or small group) to finish their task.

TO WIN

The first player (or small group) to correctly sort the scenario cards into the
proper category/subcategory piles wins.
