Finally, a fun way to reinforce the language of literature with small groups or the whole class! This familiar activity will have students actively thinking about the words Gary Paulsen used to bring the story of Tracker to life. Because students only have to recognize the word matching the definition, not generate it, it is ideal for discussing both new and familiar terms. Two games are included – chapters 1-6 and 7-12. There are 30 cards in each set to allow for whole class participation. The special calling cards, featuring fold over flaps to hide the answers, also give you the option of using them in centers - small group of students can play independently without a bingo caller. 30 vocabulary words are used on the cards, but each board only has 25; students have to really think about the words and their definitions, because they may not have a word to match every definition called. Options for extending play past the traditional 5 in a row format increase the learning potential.

The words used in the first set are assailed, blot, brutal, buck, caterwauling, defied, deliberate, doe, flank, heartily, immensely, instinct, kindling, kneading, manure, privy, quagmire, ravaging, recoil, reservoir, ritual, roiling, ruddy, silage, silo, slab, slaughter, tallow, tangy and thrums.

The second set features the words beckoning, bile, distinguish, endurance, grouse, halo, haze, heaving, imprint, intermittently, lamely, matted, mortal danger, muzzle, peat, persist, polestar, predator, pretense, quivering, recourse, searing, stagger, stride, taint, terrain, unduly, venison and wading.
