This activity demonstrates the advantages and disadvantages of one-way and two-way communication using Tinker Toys. This activity comes from a publication entitled "Communications and Human Relations Activities for Work Adjustment" created by the Utah State Board for Vocational Education.
Included with the Homophone document is a quiz on the words that the students have just looked up as well as a bell quiz. (The answer to the bell quiz is that if you remove the first letter of each word, you have a homophone.) There is also a homophone riddle. Have students work in pairs or small groups to see who can get all the answers first.
