Team members will take turns guessing verbal clues for scientific terms or concepts from across all Essential Standards for Elementary Math & Science.
Teams must be in groups of 2 or 3 in order to compete in this event. Teams may not bring anything with them to the competition. Event Leaders will provide stopwatches, 40 words printed on index cards, and score sheets.
Team with the most words guessed correctly in 4 minutes wins.
Students get caught on a word they don’t know and forget to pass in order to move on. Students may not use any part of the actual word in the clue. Example: if the word is “thermometer” the clue cannot be “thermo.”
Many students will have never seen the TV game show Password, so you may want to show them a video clip from Youtube for reference.
