This game involves collaboration amongst teams to create "initial soup". Students simply use their own names to create words. Each word gets assigned a point value.
Directions and point value sheets are included with this product. The teacher just needs to add music or even just a timer and the students' creating can begin. The game may need to be modeled for the younger grades before they play by themselves.
This game can be used in the beginning of the year when students are learning their classmates' names or throughout the year when students are paired in different groups. The outcome will never be the same because each time you play, students in the group will be different.
