My students love playing the analogy game “Round About.” In this fun activity, students get out of their desks and move around the room. This is a welcomed change from the many pencil and paper activities they so frequently are required to do. Here are the instructions for the activity:
You will be given a sheet with analogies that are missing the last word in the second pair. You must analyze the relationship of the first pair of words, and then find the final missing word on a classmate’s back. Next to the corresponding number on your recording sheet, write the answer. Even if you know a word that will make sense in the analogy, you must find the exact word on a classmate’s back before writing it on your sheet.
