During an English lesson this week English Class fourth graders played several rousing rounds of the game, Alias Jr. This is a game that stresses communicating verbally and is is loaded with rich learning opportunities. Pupils needed to explain words or concepts to other players using only words. It is a great way to force use of descriptive language. Just by virtue of playing a game like this pupils also learn important social skills, such as interaction with others. The fourth graders had a great time playing!
