I love the TABOO Game and Taboo plays just like the Taboo game with all its uses in class and it is just another way to get students to think about the topic we just finished, or about to start, or currently studying. Due to my long standing love affair of my own LaGumbos, I came up with my own LaTaboo series.
I enjoy working on a list of TABOO words and lists for each chapter/topic we are covering at the time – Parishes, Huey Long Era, Civil War, Early French, Early Spanish, Statehood, Antebellum, Early 1900's, WWII, Civil rights, etc.
There are ELEVEN SETS of six cards (64) each here plus a few blank cards so you can fix whatever mistakes I might have made. Plus there is a set of guidelines with which to play.
I generally print mine – in color or B/W, laminate them, then cut them out and pack them in a Ziplock bag for future uses. I then can use them each year – over and over – and I have. It's expensive the first time but the second time I use them they are CHEAP! But, then I'm all about CHEAP. And I hope you are too.
This set has become one of my all-time favorite topics. I have always looked forward to getting to my Parishes Power-Points, my numerous map projects' and my Map Test because it generally starts the year off right.

The Parish Name students are trying to guess I in the yellow box at the top and the words they CAN'T use are listed below.
