Category Clues

Ask each student to make three lists: one of people who fit into a category, one of places that fit into a category, and one of things that fit into a category. Each list should contain three familiar items and one item that might be unfamiliar to others. Let students use reference materials such as an encyclopedia. Then have students write a sentence that includes each list, underlining the unfamiliar item. Next, tell students to exchange sentences with a partner and guess the general meaning of each underlined word.
