Product Description
You could print out and cut out a load of Taboo cards but, if you're lazy like me, you could just open a PowerPoint and click a mouse. I also find the PowerPoint adds a visual element, though, if you've ever used a game of Taboo in your classroom before, you'll know it's guaranteed fun however you go about it.

There are 30 clue slides here that cover very simple vocabulary (for example):
• bicycle
• coffee
• wallet
• boring
• toes

You'd think it'd only be good for younger learners but it's not the case. I used this with grade 12 (upper high-school) students with great hilarity. You can't go wrong with this game!

Basic rules: A player sits in front facing away from the screen. In less than 30 seconds, teammates must describe the word on screen for the player to guess - but there are a list of taboo words which cannot be spoken. For example, imagine the word to guess is "doctor", the taboo words might be hospital, medicine, nurse. It makes the kids think about using what they know to make themselves understood.

There's one slide with the fields left blank which you can use as a template for yourself to start making more of your own. Or, the slides themselves can be edited, so you can change any of the vocabulary or add more taboo words if you want to increase difficulty.

Hope you have fun!
