An active game that allows students to review vocabulary words for any content area.

This teaching resource is a fun and engaging way for students to review vocabulary terms for any content area. In this active game, students race through a set of hoops, trying to get across before the competing team provides a definition for a word.

Physical activity can have a positive impact on the brain and can improve cognition, mood, attention and engagement in students. So, why not give it a go?

This resource includes an instruction sheet as well as variations for playing the game.
