-I like to print them out on card-stock and laminate. Then place different bags out on their tables. We then start a race to see who cam complete their card sets first. I even let them use dictionaries. After the first round is completed and I've checked the winner's cards, we rotate and continue the rounds until all groups have been to all cards. The winning group gets a prize. I will also give a prize to the team that worked together the best.
