Product Description
Students love games like Pictionary. In this 20-30 minute activity, they draw pictures of your current vocabulary. The advantage of Partner Pictures is that all students are engaged at all times. In each pair of students, both students draw at the same time and then they guess one another's drawings.

These quick sketches make good formative assessments of students' understanding of current vocabulary as well as engaging both sides of the brain for learning and practicing new words.

Ideal for spelling lists, Social Studies, Science, Math, Foreign Language, or any other curriculum where students are responsible for learning vocabulary.

Upper grades can draw right in the boxes provided. For lower grades, or more complex drawings where these boxes are too small, use separate sheets of paper to do the drawings and use the boxes to draw a star or put a fun stamp for correct guesses.

I use individual sand timers to time my games, but you could also time each round as a class, giving time to guess and then to celebrate before moving on to the next round.

For longer vocabulary lists, copy the game on both sides of the paper and double the game instantly!

Please let me know how the game goes for you! I welcome suggestions and comments! michelle.jolley@rsd.edu
