Directions: Print and cut out the cards below. Have a student choose a card. The object is to get his/her classmates to say the boldface word at the top, but he/she cannot say the other words on the cards. In order to do this, students have to be creative with their English vocabulary and speaking abilities. You'll be surprised with what they're able to come up with!
