Instructions

Version 1- The definitions game

A student takes one card and tries to define one of the words on it. The person or people who are listening have to guess the word, including the right article. If they get stuck, the person describing can give the article and first letter.  

Version 2- Choose your poison

The person listening can choose which letter and article they want (without seeing the worksheet) and the person speaking tries to define that word. In this version, the person guessing only has one chance.
