The students loved this! Both the sound on the video and their competitive streak helped to add to the tension and engagement in the game. It helps to embed the learning of key words and terms for the exam as they need to describe the word to their team without actually saying it. Easy game to pick up quickly and lots of fun!
I printed the board in two halves and stuck them together. You can use anything you want for counters.
I also printed a pack of cards for each team in the game (There are 36 cards in a pack - each with 6 different DT Vocablulary words on - 216 terms in a pack of cards) - the chances of the same card coming up for the same colour each time was so low that it meant that they got a greater exposure to the vocabulary they need for the exam!
You can add ‘all play’ option for your advanced teams too.
