– You can have students play this vocabulary game individually or in small groups.
– Teacher writes a category on the board (eg: ice cream flavours, weather, animals that use camouflage, types of transport, space)
– Teacher then writes 5 or 10 words associated with the topic on a sheet of paper that students cannot see. These can be typical words or a little obscure if you want to be tricky!
– Then give students 5 minutes to write down as many words as they can that relate to the topic.
– When time is up, teacher shares the words on their list. Students circle any of the teacher’s words that appear on their lists.
– Give each student/group a point for each word that matches a word on the teacher’s list (you choose if spelling needs to be correct).
– Play another round, keep a points tally. The group or student with the most points is the winner!
