This is a great way to add some life to the standard vocab puzzles that focus strictly on word recognition (or just word translation). This bumps up rigor as it also incorporate categorization of the meaning!
Students group the three words to form one of the angles of the triangle. From there students demonstrate meaning by identifying what the words have in common.
This template can be used over and over again for any type of thematic vocabulary unit.
Great for a formative check of vocabulary! And students really love this HANDS-ON activity.
