Can I Catch You Out?
This resource contributed by Joanne Gates
This is a fun game to get the children used to using a dictionary and the language used to write the meanings of words. It is mostly for Year 5/6 but can be used lower down the school if the teacher or classroom assistant can help children to write sensible definitions. In Science you might want children to learn appropriate vocabulary and this is a fun way to learn meanings of these words. May be you could use it for other areas of the curriculum?

Can I Catch You Out? Vocabulary Definition Game
How familiar are you with the definitions of words? This game is based on a T.V. game called 'Call my Bluff'


Work in teams of three to fool your opponent at this words and meanings challenge.

  • Choose a word which you think looks/ sounds interesting.
  • Find the meaning and write it clearly in child-speak - words which you and your friends understand.
  • Now try to write two more meanings which you think could also match the word but which you and your friends have made up!!
  • Your meanings must sound like it has been found in a real dictionary, it should not be nonsense. May be you could 'accidently' copy the meaning of a different/similar word!
  • Write the word clearly on a piece of card with the meaning on the back
  • Next to the definition write a large F for false or T for True.
  • When you have a collection of the words be ready to challenge your opponents.

TO PLAY THE GAME
Sit on opposite sides of the table/room so your opponent can not see your definitions. Take it in turns to say the word and explain the meaning, trying hard to convince your opponents that your answer is the only real answer. Your opponents need to confer to guess the correct definition. You then reveal the True/ False answers. If you have fooled them you get the points if not they do. Keep a tally and those with the most points win.
