Product Description
Directions: Divide students into groups (3 or 4 in group). One person gives the clues a different person monitors that no "taboo" word is used in the description. The others guess the vocabulary word. Each correct guess is a point.
After each word, switch clue givers and monitors. The group who has the most points at the end of the game wins!

40 cards are included - this activity was designed as NGSSS CAR-PD assignment.

Vocabulary words include: solid, matter, chemistry, element, atom, mixture, chemical bond, viscosity, gas, property, temperature, volume, density, chemical change, physical change, periodic table, metal, electron, dependent variable, acid, base, solution, chemical equation, quantitative observation, qualitative observation, Law of Conservation, chemical formula, independent variable, mass, freezing, sublimation, heat, proton, melting, malleable, solution, saturated, solvent, scale, pH.

This activity is a review after students have completed Cornell Note outlines #1-7 & #28-36. You can find these at Sandy's Science Stuff.

I also use Jeopardy 1 Nature of Science, Properties Atomic Theory and Jeopardy 2 Matter (Acids, Bases, Mixtures, Solutions) Changes, Periodic Table as a review.
