-Mood, Tone and Theme
This game is fancy! Complete with fun titles, a built in digital timer and links throughout the game, it's like playing a real game show!! Your students will love it!
Students work in teams. When it is a particular team's turn, two students go to the front. The team chooses a category. One student has his or her back to the screen, while the other student can see the words listed. The student who can see the relevant vocabulary must elicit those words from the other student, without saying them. For example, given the vocabulary word "setting" a student might elicit that word by saying things such as "when and where a story takes place". Students try to get their partner to say as many of the vocabulary words as possible before the timer runs out.
The powerpoint contains instructions, but if you have any questions about how to make the links in the game work or how to play, please let me know!
