Teacher Notes

This is an excellent activity/game/plenary to further improve student’s work and knowledge.

I split the class into two teams (in one class I have girls against boys but in another class I have just divided the room down the middle) and when we play the game each side decides on a volunteer to come to the front, facing the class so they can’t see the board (one team at a time).

A word is shown on the IWB and each time the word is answered correctly I display another.

This works really well but it is important to set some ground rules such as not using words that rhyme with the word on display. I’ve yet to come across a class who doesn’t like the concept.

Works brilliantly in pairs also - 1 student turns their back to the IWB.

Further Notes

Student sits at front with back to board. Words are displayed behind him/her. Rest of class has to describe word to student - see how many he/she gets in 1 min. Can be reversed so that student can see the words and has to describe them to the class.
