Ever wondered how you can get all of your students engaged and talking at one time? Here it is! This file includes an activity that can engage the entire class at one time. Students love it and it gives students a chance to talk, even the students who are too shy or uncomfortable to share in front of the class!
In class: Put students in pairs. Give one student in each pair Card A and give the other student Card B. Students with Card A will go first. They will have 60 seconds to get the other student to identify all of the vocabulary terms on their card. Teacher, you are responsible for the countdown. A time with a sounding bell always enhances the thrill of the activity. The student will be giving the clues while the other is guessing the vocabulary term. After the time is up, have students explain what examples they heard that helped them guess the vocabulary term. Afterwards, switch the roles and have students with Card B give their clues to their partner. This is also great for differentiation. Students with Card B can hear examples of how to play the game and what type of examples to give from the students with Card A.
THE BEST PART OF IT ALL: Once you purchase it, the template is editable so you can create as many as you would like or change out the vocabulary terms as needed.
