Activity 9- Words in Words

                                                         picture credits:

This is a very simple activity that works with general English vocabulary. It`s a great trick under your sleeve when you have some time left before you dismiss your students.

 Level: all
Skill: writing
Material needed: none


Write a large word or phrase on the board. Divide class into teams of 3. Give them 2 minutes to come up with as many words as possible by using the letters on the board. When time is up, one leader from each team says the team's words. Each team gets 1 point for each word they write.Suggestions of words that can be used:  communication, international, strawberry, catastrophic, accidentally, experience, independent, pronunciation.

* Tip: If you want to make the game more challenging, you may not allow them to duplicate letters. And if you want to add a more competitive score to it, give the team 1 point for each letter used in a word.
