Winter Olympics has finally arrived! To celebrate, why not play a word definition quiz game with an Olympic theme?
At the start of the game, players are asked to choose among four listed countries and to pick a category – Archery (for easy) or Discus (for hard). The players are then asked to provide the meaning of 10 words with their root word given as a clue. The performance of the athlete is dependent on screen is dependent on the players’ actions – get enough points right, and one could win a gold, silver, or bronze medal, which can be printed out to take home. If they’ve earned a medal, they can also proceed to the next round to give them a chance to earn another medal!
Students can form groups and compete in this game as a team. How many rounds can each group last? How many gold, silver, or bronze medals did they earn? The group that goes the farthest round and earns the most significant medals wins! As an extra touch, the teacher can print out their medals immediately and hold an awards ceremony right then and there!
