Scrambled words

· To reinforce a person's ability to spell and recall words.

Target Group:
· Students at all levels

· A short list of "scrambled words" is placed on the blackboard. The facilitator tells the participants that they must put the letters in the correct order to form a vocabulary word.

SDIA (AIDS); esdisae (disease); ymspmot (symptom)

The participants may be divided into two equal teams. One person from each team will then race to the blackboard to spell the word correctly. The team which correctly spells the word first will receive one point. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.
