Team Pictionary

Separate the class into two teams. Have an easel with a pad of paper in front of the class where both teams can see it. Have a list of words ready that you want the class to try and depict. The teams take turns drawing and guessing. One person from Team A draws first and their team tries to guess what they are drawing by shouting out guesses. If they guess correctly they get 5 points. If they don't guess it, Team B can try to guess for 5 points. Usually a one minute time limit is given per word.
