What worked well in this class? What did not work?

Students loved it. Even the shiest talked a lot. This game is better in small groups (we were 8, no more!). Every time a card is picked, we first find the word to describe it. Even if I didn’t ask them to do so, many of them took notes of the vocabulary.
