Tic tac toe I - Using vocabulary

· To encourage proper pronunciation of vocabulary; to reinforce AIDS information

Target Group:
· Students of all levels, 5-50 players

· 15 minutes

· Blackboard, chalk

· Draw a tic-tac-toe grid on the board and fill the grid in with AIDS vocabulary.

· Divide the group into two teams: X and O

· Choose 2 students from team X

· The first team member chooses a square, e.g. "Top Right" and pronounces the word(s) in the square, e.g. "Dirty needles."

· The second team member makes a sentence about the word, e.g. "You can get AIDS from sharing dirty needles."

· If the student does this correctly, the words in the square are erased and an X is put in the square.

· Team O follows the same procedure.

· If one team gets 3 Xs or Os in a row, they win.
