Product Description

Valentine's Day Vocabulary Taboo Game

Playing TABOO is a great way to get students to speak to each other and learn a lot of new vocabulary. This game is simple to modify and use with students of all ages. In this Valentine's Day version of the game there are 20 playing cards. I've included 2 fun ways to play this vocabulary game and both are explained in the instructions.

This is a great game for students to practice word choice and to use synonyms to describe a topic. It encourages students to describe words in different ways.

There are many ways to use this game. You can use it as a literacy center or whole class activity, have students act out words rather than using language, play reverse Taboo by giving the Taboo words and having students guess the word at the top.

This Taboo game includes the following:

How to play classic Taboo

20 Taboo game cards to print, laminate and cut out

Black and white and grayscale copies are included

PDF for projecting one card at a time for a whole class activity

How to play 15 MINUTES MAX - an alternative version of the game

15 MINUTES MAX game board

Object of the game:

One player tries to get his teammate to guess the word at the top of a card. The player must give clues, but he can't use any of the Taboo words in his description. The taboo words are written beneath the word at the top of the card. Teams score points for each word successfully guessed. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
