Vocabulary becomes a game!

  • Students are given a card with an academic vocabulary word written on it.
  • Smaller words in the corner are the words that students CAN’T say when they are trying to describe the word.
  • This game is rigorous because they have to think about how to describe the concept in a clear way while avoiding the use of some words.

NOW YOU TRY!

Mammal

Describe this word

Don’t use this word in the description.

animal
