Here's how it works...
1. Choose a student to become the 'victim.' In my class, I draw a number stick so it is completely random. This way, everyone has an equal chance of participating, not just the kids who raise their hands.
2. The student comes to the front of the room and sits in a chair with their back to the board.
3. Write a vocabulary word on the board.
6. After the two clues, the 'victim' tries to guess the word that was written on the board. A quick turn around by the 'victim' confirms their guess as right or wrong.
7. Repeat as needed.
I use this game to review for science and social studies tests, math vocabulary, Flocabulary words. etc. It is also a fun way to review synonyms and antonyms because you can require the students who are giving the clues to only offer these as hints.
My students LOVE this game and it is so simple to play! No prep, no stress!
For a little teacher motivation today, I am headed to the Midwest Blogger Meet Up in Palatine, IL. I'm looking forward to meeting many of the awesome teacher bloggers from the midwest area!
