In the game "I Am...," players match words selected by the teacher with their definitions as a fun review.
game, word, definition, card, terms
Little preparation is required for this fun review game that may be adapted for any subject or topic of study. You will need one notecard for every student. On one side of each notecard, write a word that you want to use in the review. Then mix up the cards and write the definition of one of the words you have selected on the other side of each card.
You should have a card for each student that has a word on one side and an unrelated definition on the other side.
To play, pass out the cards to the students. Have a student say "I am..." and read the definition found on his card. The student who has a card with the matching term should stand, say the word. Then s/he should say "I am..." and read the definition found on the other side of the card.
Be careful to monitor the students' activity in the game so that no mistakes are made. Students can help by raising their hands if they have doubt that a term matches a given definition.
If the game has been played correctly, it will end with a definition that matches the last word left on a notecard.
