This will take some teacher work to prepare but playing a game of “I Have___. Who Has ___?” can be a fun way to review any type of fact.
- Prepare index cards with the vocabulary words and then matching cards with the definition (or a fill in the blank sentence).
- Distribute the cards among the students, giving each an equal number of word cards and definition cards.
- To start the game one student (or the teacher) says, “Who has — (they read a definition)? The student holding the correct card says, “I have — (they say the answer).” That student then says, “Who has — (they read a definition card they are holding)? And so on until the cards are gone.
- You could switch it so that the students first give the word and the answer is the definition.
This game lends itself to review of any subject. I use it in first grade to practice reading words, but in that case, all the cards are displayed so everyone can see them. Students then choose a card that they can see and say, “Who has —?”
