3. Twenty objects

In this, you need to put 20 different objects on a table and give students a few minutes to memorize them. Then, cover the objects with a cloth and ask the students to write down the names of as many objects as they can remember. You can choose objects related to your current topic of study or that are connected to your subject in any way.

4. Dictionary

In this game, many students will be able to get a kick out of inventing definitions for uncommon words found at random in a dictionary. In this game, each group reads out three definitions for an obscure word and the rest of the class decides collectively and votes on which they think is correct. The fun part is high points will be scored for fooling your classmates with a made-up definition. And students will learn new words too!

5. Crossword puzzle

In this game, choose a list of words and their descriptions. The crossword game transforms these boring lessons into a fun experience. You can choose words, names of the historical figures and create a puzzle with hints. Divide the students into groups and see the results at the end of an interactive session.
