Product Description
This fast-paced game makes a good end of year or back to school review. Students have just one minute to give oral clues or gestures, hoping their team can guess the six words in a category (verbs, clothing, foods, animals, professions, places, feelings, transportation, sports and more). Targets multiple intelligences: bodily-kinesthetic, interpersonal and linguistic.

Subject: 1st - 2nd year French (and above)
Grades: 6th -10th
Time: 50 minutes

Materials: a timer (or a reliable student timer who watches a clock with a second hand for one minute), copies of vocabulary lists cut up into 60 cards, small box or paper sack from which players draw cards

To play this game, divide your class into two teams, A and B. Call on a volunteer from Team A to draw a card. He or she will tell his team what the category is: Things you do on vacation. The team member giving the clues has 15 to 20 seconds to study the words to make sure he knows them. If he doesn’t know them, he can ask the teacher. When he is ready, the timer is set and he gives clues to Team A in English or the target language, depending on the language level. For French II students, you might challenge them to give the clues in French.

Clues may consist of several words or phrases and gestures can also be used to act out the word. Each team has one minute to guess the list of six words in the target language. Below is a sample vocabulary list with suggested clues in parenthesis.

Things you do on vacation - verbs

1. faire un voyage (when you take a plane or train you do this)
2. prendre des photos (act this out)
3. dormir (act this out)
4. manger dans un restaurant (Garçon, qu’est-ce que vous recommendez?)
5. nager (La jeune fille est dans la piscine. Qu’est-ce qu’elle fait?)
6. jouer au tennis (act this out)

A one page worksheet is also included. Given lists of three words, students must figure out the connection. Example: beau, oiseau, cadeau (words that end in -eau).

Note that this product is also sold in a bundle entitled "French End of Year Bundle - Cet Été, Parlez ou Pantomime, Bastille Day".
