In this game the class is usually divided into groups that will compete with each other to create a vocabulary
list. The groups are given a card with a topic. The objective: to come up with vocabulary that is relevant to the
topic within a given time limit. When time is up, they compare lists. When a group has a word that no other
group has, they score a point. The tension increases as cards are compared one–by–one. Inevitably new words are
discovered, words are challenged, and there is conversation/discussion.
How to play: The students fill in all the sandwiches they can think of. You ask team one for a sandwich. They
say “roast beef.” Another teams calls out “Got It!” Everyone who has “roast beef” crosses it out. You go on to team
two. The team with the most sandwiches not crossed out wins.
After the game is over, pass out the “possible answers” card for sandwiches and discuss.
