Apples To Apples As a Learning Game?

So, I'm thinking about adapting Apples to Apples as an educational game. I'm jotting down a couple ideas I've had so far.

  • Every "noun" card is an animal.
  • Every "adjective" card could describe an animal. These could be words like "aquatic," "big," "gray," "squishy," "slimy."
  • Instead of the judge player picking just one card submitted by the other player per round that describes the animal, the judge is free to pick as many that work.
  • The cards are either then saved as a stack to be reviewed by the teacher at the end of the activity or the words and animal are written down on a worksheet.
  • The point values for winning will probably have to be increased because more cards will be able to be picked by the judge.
