This game is intended to help students practice reference skills. Provided are:
- a set of words (you can also add your own words in case you want to incorporate vocabulary or spelling words you are using in your classroom)
- cards containing different aspects of the word that your students will need to find when they look up the word in the dictionary
This game has two teams competing to use a dictionary to find different parts of the entry of specific words, using guide words to help locate the entry. This is a great way to prepare for standardized tests (test prep).
Common Core Standards:
5L4c and 4L4b: Consult reference materials (e.g., dictionaries, glossaries, thesauruses), both print and digital, to find the pronunciation and determine or clarify the precise meaning of key words and phrases.
