New Horizon 1 (Units 7-11) Taboo Words

Materials for the word game 'Taboo' using New Horizon 1, Units 7 through 11.

This resource is designed for reviewing vocabulary from the last five units of the New Horizon 1 textbook, including the "Let's ~" and "Grammar for Communication" pages.

The word game 'Taboo' involves describing a word without using it.

Students sit in groups of four to six. The role of "guesser" rotates each turn (though, the students can help their friends). When a student has successfully guessed a word you described, you can put a check mark in the check column to keep track. You might also record their group number. At the end, give a small reward to the team that made the most correct guesses.

    Why are there 2 columns for check?

    "You might also record their group number," to keep track of the team that makes the most correct guesses.
