Instructional Procedures:
Hook: As class begins, reveal a picture (one that you have drawn of today’s activity) that shows students playing pictionary. Give the students a couple minutes to figure it out.

  1. Make 2 copies of the vocabulary list below and cut out six sets of words to put in six separate envelopes.
  2. Divide students into groups of 6 and give each group an envelope.
  3. Explain that they will be playing pictionary using the words we have learned in this unit. In their groups of 6 they should divide into 2 teams of 3 people. One student should choose a word from the envelope and he/she as well as a representative from the opposing team will draw that word simultaneously. The team that guesses the word first receives a point. After all words have been used the team with the most points
