This game can be played with teams or partners. Students try to connect a chain of letters from top to bottom (starting and ending with a colored hexagon).The answer for each clue begins with the letter in the grid. They “earn” a hexagon by being the first to answer the clue. When a hexagon is claimed, the students who earned it may put their initials inside it or color it their “team color.” If the students are going for the “N” - go to the clues for words that begin with “N” and read it to the students -- the first to shout out the word gains the hexagon.
If you put the grid up on the Smart board it is easy to play as a full class game/activity. Two people come to front and compete to earn the hexagon.
