Snowball is a fun activity to reinforce the learning of vocabulary

Very fun but comes with a word of caution!  Snowball involves learners throwing pieces of paper at each other! I always warn them that the ‘snowballs’ must be thrown below head height!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Learners stand facing each other in a line
  2. They each have a piece of paper:
    1. Has a key word that they have been learning.
    2. Has the meaning / definition of that key word.
  3. On the count of 3 (that’s how I do it) they throw their ‘snowballs’ at one another.
  4. They then pick up a piece of paper and find their partner e.g. the key word and the definition that match.
  5. Stand in a circle and each pair take it in turns to read out their key word and definition.  The class listens and checks that everyone has found the right partner.
  6. You can play it again after this.
