Using multiple meaning vocabulary words from the novel The Cay, students play a fun card game that makes them read and practice words with multiple meanings. Use this vocabulary activity to help students with learning new vocabulary in this fun game! Students will learn multiple meanings of words when they play this game before, during, or after reading the novel The Cay, by Theodore Taylor.
1. Cut out the Blue Vocabulary Cards and print out on cardstock. Laminate.
2. Cut out the individual sentence strips for each vocabulary word. Print out on cardstock and laminate.
3. Game play: 2-4 players. Shuffle cards. Turn over Blue Vocabulary cards so they are upside down in the center of the table. Deal out the sentence strips. The youngest person turns over one of the Blue vocabulary cards. The player who first realizes he has the sentence strip for that card must call out the word and then read the sentence strip out loud. He may then discard his sentence strip, and turn over the next card. Play continues until all the vocabulary cards have been played. The player with the fewest sentence strips left in his hand wins!
