  • Activity to Try: Together as a class, in student groups, or individually, have the students "compete" in a Jeopardy game that reinforces the meaning of words. The example and templates below were created using PowerPoint--know that there are many on-line tools that allow you to create these types of games also.

    With older students, they could divide into groups and create their own "Jeopardy" game writing "clues" and providing pictures that establish meaning to the words.

Teachers will have to have a look and see if this site would work for their students.
