Looking for a fun way to amp up vocabulary? Here is your answer! After reading "Teach Like a PIRATE" by Dave Burgess I was inspired to create a series of vocabulary games to incite competition in the classroom. I have done this activity with both junior and senior level classes but it could really be modified for any level. There are four different games in the olympics of vocabulary and I separated students into teams of four (each team picks their country they want to represent). We usually played Vocabulary Olympics on Fridays nearing the end of school or before vacation and motivation was always high! I provide detailed instructions for how to play each game and there is an attached leader board that you can update weekly with new scores! I hope your students enjoy the games as much as mine did!
