Soon after writing this activity, it became a class favorite!
The lesson begins by reading the introductory paragraphs with the class, and going over the game rules for PASSWORD (a complete set of game rules is provided on the lesson pages). A scorekeeper is chosen, and the class is divided into two teams. A volunteer from each team will give clues. "Captains” are changed after each game.
During Game 1, you can use any four words, names, or terms in this section. Underline one word, name, or term at a time where it appears on the lesson pages. The captains should take their clues from the description that includes the answer. Continue in the same way with Games 2-4.
Once students have finished playing the four PASSWORD games, they will complete 30 true/false questions pertaining to information covered in the preceding games.
Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress.
The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
