This is a perfect game for an academic environment since we spend so much time teaching students the meaning of domain-based words, phrases, and concepts. Here’s how I implemented the game:
This will be a great experience for you and the students. Always remember to keep it fun and light. Give credit to the volunteers for their help. Most importantly, be very organized in the preparation and delivery of the game. If you are organized, this will be among the most memorable activities of your entire semester.
