This is a great game that can be used to review content words, academic vocabulary or other words that are key to understanding in your classroom. I don't really have a name for it...so we simply call it the vocab game.
Here's what you do -
make up index cards with each of your vocabulary words on them.
then, you either tape them or clothespin them to the back of one student's shirt
have your student walk around the circle so that everyone but the person wearing it knows the word
then have the other students give clues until the person guesses the word
It's a lot of fun!
