Power Point Games

Tennessee's Academic Vocabulary website displays a good number of resources aimed at developing academic vocabulary at school. These materials include some blank templates of  Power Point Games that can be completed by teachers of different levels and subject matter.

These are a couple of examples:

Holiday Squares is a version of Noughts and Crosses. It can be played with the whole class divided in two teams or in small groups of four (a pair of students make up a team), for instance. Older students could also generate their own games for the rest of the class.

Password game. A students stands on the front of the classroom with his or her back to the interactive board. The class gives the student clues to the vocabulary word on the screen as a clock keeps time. The student tries to guess the word before the buzzer sounds.
