A challenging word is given and students must race to find out the definition of the word. This can be played as a whole class activity or you can prepare pre-made word lists for groups to play with. You can divide the class into teams and have them race around on a tract. With this approach it might take several games to have someone reach the end. This might also be an exciting way to introduce vocabulary words to a class.
I've created a game board that you can use to play this game on.
Students must find a word that they think that the rest of the class doesn't know. They will then write the definition of the word on a card and the other students will each write their own made-up definition. The picker then reads all of the definition and the other students will try to pick the correct definition.
1 point - a student chooses the correct word
2 points- for are given to the a student who writes a false definition that other students choose.
3 points - for a student who chooses a word that no one guesses the correct definition.
