Tip: Guess the Word!
How do I do it?
Make a list of 10-20 key vocabulary words on the board. Write one of the words on a slip of paper and place it in an envelope. Each table group asks a yes-no question about the word until it is guessed. Repeat.
Variations & Extensions
For every word guessed students must write a sentence and/or a definition of the word on their whiteboard, in their learning log, or add it to their personal dictionary.
