Set of 3 quick but fun review games for an NGSS energy unit - fun as stations! Includes the following games:
1. Test Review Taboo - Played in pairs, students review vocabulary terms with a set of 14 game cards. Each card has a word that Player #1 must get Player #2 to say - but the trick is they are given several words they can't use in their effort. This gets kids to think about the terms on a deeper level by avoiding the definition words they are accustomed to using. Game play instructions included.
2. Energy Chain Puzzle - Students create a domino-like chain from phrases and definitions. Students are given 14 boxes with 2 phrases each, one on each side. Students must match the right side of the box to a matching word or phrase on the left side of another box. They repeat to form a long chain. Instructions and key included.
3. Energy "Cootie Catcher" - Students complete a "cootie catcher" paper foldable with answers to energy questions, fold the paper according to given directions, then play with their creation. Instructions and key included.
Each game is simple and easy to print - no color needed. Taboo cards and chain pieces can be reused class to class and year to year if you store them in sandwich bags.
