Face to Face with the Ugly
I know some people don't like using hangman to play hangman. So, I came up with this groovy idea. I draw two picture frames on the board. They should be about 2 feet by 2 feet. I have these picture frames wide enough apart to write the mystery word in the middle. Next, I draw a black head in the middle of each picture frame. I tell the students that we are playing hangman, and I usually divide it boys and girls. One picture frame is for the boys and other is for the girls. Here is where it gets interesting. Each mistakes get a part of the face added. So, you can add nose, mouth, etc. To be really creative. I turn some of them into monsters, like Frankenstein, or something from the bottom of the ocean. So, either you can finish your drawing or finish adding body parts. This is really funny, and the kids enjoy it.
