Strange Words is an informative yet hilarious multiple-choice screen game designed to test your student's educated guessing skills.


Strange Words is a multiple-choice game created around the newly released words in the dictionary. The fun and challenge of the game are to see how students can use prior knowledge of existing words to match these new words to their correct definitions. It's easier said than done. Since new words are added to the dictionary each year, selected words are relevant to students and culturally appropriate for all groups.

This Resource Includes:

  • How-to document (pdf file)
  • Complete PowerPoint game file
  • Individual (10 Q&A + instructions) game slides (jpeg files)
  • Title slide (jpeg file)

About this Product
If you're like me, I love watching students laugh at themselves and with each other. This resource is perfect for inviting students on stage or entering the crowd to hear students justify their answer before showing the correct answer slide. Students will entertain the crowd with their reasoning and the whole audience will be on their toes anticipating the reveal of the right answer.
