This End of the Year Taboo Game is great for vocabulary development and can be used in many grades. It encourages students to practice their oral language and vocabulary skills. They race against the clock to explain the End of the Year-related word at the top of the card, but they are not allowed to use any of the TABOO words underneath it. This makes it a bit trickier but encourages thought and creativity when describing the word. It can be a fun center activity and a lot of fun for the whole class.
This is a great game for students to think about word choice and to use synonyms to describe a topic. It encourages students to describe a word in different ways.
There are many flexible options for this game:
*Use it as a literacy center
*Play with the whole class
*Have students act out words rather than using language
*Play reverse Taboo by giving the Taboo words and have students guess the word at the top
Set up it easy! Just make copies, laminate them (if you want), cut up the game cards, and break students into groups. Then students use the cards to play Taboo just as the regular directions indicate. Directions are included in this download. Whatever you choose, have fun.
