Verbs and Meaning Game

Have students work in pairs. Give each student in the pair a different column of words from the list shown here. Tell students to add -ate or -en to each word to form a verb, and then to write each verb on a card. Students should look up each verb in a class dictionary and write two meanings on the back of each card, in random order: the correct meaning and a made-up meaning meant to stump their partner. Students then take turns drawing their partner's cards and guessing which meaning is correct. Each correct answer earns a point.
