This is my FAVORITE test prep game to use in my classroom. I have been using it for the past four years, and my kiddos LOVE It (they don't even know they're test prepping!). Great for use in Math Centers!
I recommend that you print this on card-stock and laminate before putting in the hands of your students so they can be re-used year after year!
How to Play:
Place vocabulary words in cup/container as they are introduced, including 3-4 BANG! cards.
Students play in teams of 2-4.
One student picks a card.
They are expected to give the definition of the vocabulary word they have chosen.
Another student has their vocabulary book open to check the student's answer.
If the student gets correctly defines the word, they get to keep the card. If not, they put the card back in the cup.
If the student chooses BANG! then they put all of their cards back into the cup.
Play continues until all cards have been correctly defined.
I used these in my 4th grade classroom, but they include words from 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade curriculum for review and preview.
Enjoy! And leave feedback :)
