THIS PACK INCLUDES- A COLOR GAME BOARD, A BLACK AND WHITE GAME BOARD, DEFINITION CARDS, A DEFINITION ANSWER KEY, & A VOCABULARY QUIZ
The 15 vocabulary words used in this pack are:
HOW TO PLAY:
Pair students up with a partner.
Give both students several game pieces of your choice (linking cubes work well, OR just cute little squares out of construction paper) 1 color per student. For example, one student gets 10 blue game pieces, and their opponent gets 10 red pieces.
Students will have a stack of definition cards facing down to draw from.
Student will read the definition on the card aloud, and look on the game board for the matching vocabulary term.
If he/she finds it, they put one of their game pieces on top of the word on the board.
Switch off to the opponent
If the opponent draws a card with the same definition on it, they can BUMP the other student's game piece off of the matching vocabulary word, and claim that spot with their game piece.
Give each round 5-10 minutes. When you call time, whichever student has the most game pieces on the board wins!!!
separate several game pieces per pair of students and place them in large ziplock bag
print out a game board per pair of students
print out 4 (or more) copies of each defintion card page per student. Cut, and place [shuffled] in the large ziplock bag.
***if you don't have game pieces or linking cubes to use, you can always just cut squares out of colored construction paper to put in their ziplock bags as game pieces!!!***
You can quiz students afterwards to test what they have reviewed!
