Shoot the Word

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: Antonia Halacheva

This physical game can be used in any subject area to review the children's existing vocabulary, to reinforce language you might be teaching in your lessons, or to introduce new language.

The teacher draws a couple of circles on the white board! There are different words in each circle.

The students are divided into two teams! A member of each team comes to the front of the white board holding a ball! The teacher reads a definition and the student has to throw the ball at matching word on the white board.

Points can be given!
