  • Type out vocabulary words for current unit, one per page.
  • Copy enough for each group of two students to have a copy.
  • You can have the students split their vocabulary list. I could hold the words up first and my partner can give me clues. Once I am out of words, we switch roles. Otherwise, you can have each student do the entire list. I hold all the words up, my partner gives me clues. We shuffle our vocabulary words and switch roles.



Student Directions:

  • Hold one vocabulary word up to your head.
  • Your partner needs to give you clues until you say the word.
  • Place another word to your forehead and repeat the first two steps.
