Challenge yourself and your classmates to come up with new words based on vocabulary or spelling words! This brainstorming session results in colorful art.
Play this word game in pairs, small groups, or with the whole class! Begin by creating a setting for your Word Worms. On a large dry-erase board, draw a colorful scene with Crayola Dry-Erase Markers or Dry Erase Crayons. You might draw a ground line with a few plants with staggered roots below ground. Draw a large worm that is crawling.
Choose a word from your current vocabulary or spelling list and write it inside the worm. That is the key word for the activity.
On each plant, write what type of word will be written on its roots. Use a different color for each category, such as "person," "thing," "related word," "synonym," or "antonym."
Fill in as many words on the roots as you can think of for each category. Challenge each other to see who can think of the most words that are appropriate. Simply use a facial tissue to erase and then rewrite.
