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. Enjoy! :)

Blank cards and the card with answers/descriptions on are supplied. Can be used as a whole lesson or as a revision lesson/activity. Lesson to go with doesn’t cover the environmental properties but works well as a whole lesson. Print page 1 as their starter activity. Then I got the students to cut up their own cards and match the keyword (on the wordsearch) to the decription and the picture on the cards. The pictures are really effective in helping them remember which property means what. Following that there are some quizes you can get them to do - questioning each other etc. Extension to include written descriptions of materials they have been studying linking with the material properties.
