Fun Vocabulary Game for Kids

Kids in my class love playing Hedbanz, so I decided to capitalize on it. Before our geometry test (which was loaded with vocabulary), I typed the terms, made six copies, and cut them with the paper cutter. It was quick and easy.

I gave one set of terms to each group of four students. They took turns pulling a slip of paper and holding it up to their head. Other kids in their group could shout out synonyms or definitions, pantomime, or draw pictures to help the student with the term figure it out. Everyone was engaged!

Fifteen minutes of this game did the trick! I encourage you to try it in your classroom.
