Tic Tac Toe

This is an activity that goes far beyond just memorizing meanings of lets kids make connections!!!  You can do this as a pre-assessment, a quick check mid-way through a unit or prior to a test...

How does it work?

Give students a list of vocabulary words on index cards or small cards on cardstock.
Students will shuffle the cards and deal out nine cards in a 3X3 format.

Ask student to form eight sentence each (orally), including the three words straight across in a row, straight down in a column, or a diagonal.

Then share the best sentence that made the most connections or misconceptions between words and concepts listed.
