This Mitosis Taboo Game will have your students in stitches as they review the terms found int mitosis and the cell cycle. One student at a time guesses the terms while the other give them descriptive clues WITHOUT using the taboo words found below the term. This forces students to really think about concepts and reword them in different ways when they can't use the most obvious words. ALWAYS a hit in class.

This Christmas Taboo Game is a really great oral language activity for elementary and middle school. Students work against the clock to get their teammates to guess the TABOO word at the top of their game card without using any of the related words that are on the card.
