Interactive PowerPoint game that you can use to help your students understand and express a variety of word associations. Excellent game for word retrieval and word relationships. There are 20 game slides included in this game with an additional game slide that you can duplicate and use to include your own words. The orange planet you see on the slide also functions as a time keeper (it disappears in 30 seconds!!!).
Divide the class into teams. Players on each team take turns throughout the game. The player will click to a slide, and read the word. Click again to start the “clock” (you will see the orange planet start to disappear). The player has to come up with as many associated words for the word on the slide before the planet disappears (30 seconds). The players earn 1 point for each associated word. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins!!
You can also choose to have all players list their associated words on paper during the 30 seconds, then talk about their responses once time is up. Another fun way to play!
