Amazing Ambitious Animal Alphabet

A word game where players describe an animal that begins with each letter of the alphabet. The animal is named and described with a word beginning with the same initial letter.  Descriptive words much match characteristics of each animal named.

Players are awarded points for both animal and descriptive words.

ambitous ant, busy bee, calm clam examples

Add a time limit to make the game more challenging and exciting.

Encourage three or more word links such as: bright buzzing busy bees

Work in teams for a fun collaborative word game.

Change the topic to make the game more or less challenging. (Less challenging= anything found in nature, More challenging=ocean animals)

Tip: Have players list the alphabet vertically on a page before play begins.
