Looking to add excitement to your vocabulary instruction? Get students fired up with a little friendly competition in this vs. Vocabulary Battle Project.
Students read and look for interesting or unknown words in their books. They pick their top three and then go head-to-head in a battle of wits, creativity, and vocabulary.
The goal of this project presentation, besides to introduce the class to new vocabulary words, is to entertain. Even though the "opponents" will be competing in front of the class, they will actually be working together behind the scenes on the presentation and PowerPoint/Google Slides to make it as interesting as possible. The class then vote on the words to pin down a "winner."
Product includes Vocabulary Find, Project Overview and Rubric, Sample Presentation, Outline, Student Example, Presentation Scoring Sheet Student, and a Project Checklist.
