1) cards with two vocabulary words
Number of Teams: 2
1. One member from a team will be given a card with two vocabulary words. Each word will be given different point values based on difficulty.
2. The team representative will have a specific time limit to act-out the word.
3. Other team members must identify the vocabulary word that their representative is acting in order to earn points.
This is especially helpful for kinesthetic learners. It can also be very fun for students to see their classmates step outside of their comfort zones.
Like Pictionary Vocabulary, students may be tempted to act out definitions of the word that have little to do with the context of the lessons they have learned in your class. You may wish to make a rule that the acting must connect to something they have learned (or have bonus points for doing so).
