    • How to Use: Play Pictionary with a set of vocabulary terms that are given to the students on printed cards. After looking at the cards, students draw a visual image to represent the word and their partner tries to guess the word. Once the word is guessed it is written on the screen. The record feature can be used to capture the Pictionary game for playback.
