This game is similar to "Scattergories." Print the cards below, cut them out, and give one to each team. Then choose one letter of the alphabet, and have the teams think of one word beginning with that letter for each category. After a set amount of time (3 minutes, for example) stop and review their answers, giving one point for each suitable answer. If two teams write the same word, neither team gets a point (this encourages creativity). Then choose another letter of the alphabet, and do it all over again. Students love this game, and it's a good way to reinforce some difficult vocabulary words!
