Tic-Tac-Toe with Words

Tic-Tac-Toe is a good review of concepts and vocabulary.

  1. On the board, draw a tic-tac-toe grid. In each box write a vocabulary word.
  2. Split the class up into two groups. (Team "X" and Team "O").
  3. Ask the teams to pick one person each to be their Speakers.
  4. Taking turns, ask each Speaker to call out a vocabulary word on the grid.
  5. The Speaker's team has to give a quick definition of the word. If they are correct, write an "X", for Team "X", or an "O" for Team "O" in the box.
  6. The object is to form a line of "Os" or "Xs" just like tic-tac-toe to win.
