Vocabulary Builder

Found in: games; vocabulary

This game is based on the Groucho Marx show 'You Bet Your Life.' The game needs almost no preparation and can be played in any class that has vocabulary to learn. I am a French teacher and use the game to encourage class participation. I use a list of words students have been studying. The first word on the list is the secret word. 'Say the secret word and win a prize.' The first student to use a complete sentence, which contains the secret word, wins. The prize is anything the teacher wants it to be: an extra-credit point, a candy, etc. After the first word on my secret list is guessed, I tell or show the class what it was and the game resumes with the next secret word.
