Another improvement on Hangman
I have been teaching in South Korea for sometime now and I found Hangman to be one of the most requested games. Unfortunately, this game is used so often that I was worried that it would loses some of its educational benefit. So, here is a twist to keep the kids on their toes: Place on the board the number of blanks for one word (example "police officer"). Then, provide clues about the word such as appearance, duties, associated accessories, etc... This requires the students know not only the word but, what it means. Works best with occupations, locations, animals (when compared with actions words).
