Practice forty words and phrases originating from characters in Greek and Roman myths with this fun game. First, the cards are distributed to the students. (Up to 41 can play!) The game begins with a question: “Who has a term that complete confusion or disorder?” Students scan their cards, and one student pipes up, “I have chaos!” then reads the question on his card. The game continues until all terms are disclosed.
Play once or over and over again!
