|My word wall|
While teaching art vocabulary is something I already incorporate into my lessons and the way I teach... with recurring talks of standardized testing (yes - even in elementary art), I feel as if the heat has been turned up. In my experience (although short), I've found that students often easily learn and demonstrate taught concepts, techniques, and knowledge visually, but oftentimes fall short when it comes to verbalizing these things (especially in my case where may of my students are just learning English)! So in order to reinforce the art vocabulary taught, I created my Word Wall Scavenger Hunt and Jeopardy lesson!

Each color table gets a scavenger hunt packet to complete as a group. The packet contains a table full of clues (or rather definitions'ish) of the words located on my word wall. So students first read the clue and then try to find the corresponding word on my word wall (using the visuals to assist).
Depending on the class size, consistency of work ethic, and teamwork, the packet can take 1-2 class periods to complete. To help students along, on the second day I sometimes give my students the first letter of the word they are searching for for each clue (that way they are at least looking in the right area - there are 73 words after all). :)
So what's the motivation to complete this packet accurately and in its entirety? AH so glad you asked! :)
