You will need:
KEY words from your topics. Arrange them randomly across a board like above
How it works:
Pupils have to work out what categories the words fall into and HOW they link. For example, using the picture above, one group of connected words are; ‘Wrench, Ratchet, Socket and Pliers’. Their category could be tools!
You can create an interactive version of this game here
For a competitive game, Pupils can get a point per correct grouping and then an additional bonus point for the correct connection!
This is a FANTASTIC way to start a lesson and a great way to reinforce the terminology and revise before tests/ exams!
Give pupils the DEFINITIONS to words and get them to write they key words BEFORE they group them
Get pupils to create their own and share with each other!
