I Have/ Who Has Vocabulary Practice

Cut the terms and definitions into strips and distribute them among students or small groups of students. One student begins with "who has..." while the others listen for the definition that is on their strip. The person with the correct definition raises his or her hand and says "I have..." with the correct term. Round One can be done with student notes available and no time limit. Even after the students have completed the list, have them practice it so it's completed within a certain time. Or use a stop watch to time the round. Have them go for a class record.
