This interactive strategy takes the form of a game in which students engage with targeted vocabulary. Students are challenged to practice vocabulary words by describing them to each other without using the word. The game's rounds progress from using several words, to one word, to no words—only pictures.
This strategy can be used as an icebreaker or get to know you activity to establish community in a classroom, or can be used with content to incorporate physical movement into a formative assessment. For younger grades it can be used to teach simple vocabulary or topics. For older grades, it can be used to aid in with memory of abstract concepts because of the active engagement along with physical movement.
