Point It Out!

To develop and assess content vocabulary comprehension at all levels of proficiency, pass out copies of a setting under study, like a park, doctor's office, rainforest, ancient town etc. and direct students to point at vocabulary as you say it.  You can ask questions about the vocabulary as well as make the clues more difficult, like, "Point to a structure with right angles" or "Who has the most decision-making power in this scene?" etc.
