This interactive PowerPoint game can be used during individual, small group or classroom group activities. Word Shark is a vocabulary game that addresses word roots and prefixes/suffixes. This game is set up similar to BOGGLE, but the game board has root words and prefixes/suffixes rather than letters. The goal is to find REAL words by combing a root word with a prefix and/or suffix. The timer begins automatically when you click to reveal the game board. After a minute, the shark will appear, hiding the game board. Count all the letters in the words you find. Each letter is worth 1 point. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins!
