I love the TABOO Game and all its uses in class and it is another way to get students to think about the chapter we just finished, or about to start, are currently studying. Due to my long standing love of my own LaGumbos, I came up with my own LaTaboo series.
I love coming up with list of TABOO words and lists for each chapter we are covering at the time – Huey Long Era, Civil War, Early French, Early Spanish, Statehood, Antebellum, Early 1900's, WWII, Civil rights, etc.
There are FIFTEEN SETS of six cards (90) each here plus a blank set so that you can make your own cards. 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 favorites. I have always looked forward to getting to my Huey Long PowerPoint, my numerous Huey projects' and my Huey Test because if generally has ended up right before state testing – bummer! But, hey once testing is over we can do more of the fun stuff and get to more resent material the student relate to.
