Word Blitz is a superb way to begin a lesson (or finish one for that matter). We guarantee that it will become a firm classroom favourite in no time!
The game contains prompts at three different levels, from elementary, through intermediate and on to advanced. The idea is that players choose the ruleset appropriate to their level (see below) and they take it in turns and compete for points until a set time/point limit is reached. The prompts are general enough that the same cards can be used over-and-over again. It is best played by groups of students (max. 5) or as a whole class (divided into groups). As an added bonus, the reverse of the cards contain the letters of the alphabet, these are a handy resource in their own right and can be used for a multitude of games and activities.
Descriptions of the activities can be found in the image gallery.
