Science Wordz is a guessing game quite similar to the popular party game Taboo (TM). In this game, a “clue-giver” will try to get their teammates to guess the science word on the game card without saying the word, itself or any of the clue words below. Each ”clue-giver” will have a maximum of 2 minutes to get their teammates to guess the word correctly.
Teams will earn one point for guessing a word correctly within the time limit. The team with the most points at the end of the game WINS!
This is an excellent way to encourage students to think beyond the definition of a vocabulary word. The game requires multidimensional thinking about the use and meaning of words and builds connections between scientific terminology and prior knowledge. By using their own words to describe vocabulary terms, scientific terminology becomes more meaningful and students are able to build an enduring understanding of complex vocabulary.
