LENGTH: 5-10 minutes
TOPIC: describe a word without using taboo words
Create or use pre-made list of words according to the level of your students (some examples are attached here). On the top, in bold, there is a word they need to describe. Under this word there should be 3-4 words that they cannot use to describe the desired word = taboo words.
Let students work in groups – let each one have a turn describing the word, they can go several rounds. The student that gets the word first, keeps the described card so they can count points at the end of the activity.
print the taboo lists on a cardboard paper and laminate, so it is not seethrough when students are holding the cards.
