This is a fun & energizing activity for teaching vocabulary.


  • Get some "Post-It's"
  • Write vocabulary words (two of each) from your lessons on them or have your students write them
  • Place one set on the back left side and one on the back right side of the room
  • Draw a picture of or simply write a matching word on the board
  • Divide your class into two teams
  • Have one student from each team come to the back of the room
  • Say "Go"
  • Students race to match the Post It's to the images or words on the board
  • Give a point to the first team to do so correctly
  • Continue

After two students have matched all the words you can have the students repeat the vocabulary words together. Then pick two new students from each team to come take a turn.
