Lesson Plan:
Description of Idea

This is done at the very beginning of class. We call it a bell ringer activity.

The class is divided in half. One student is selected to lead the process. The students look at the clues that are given and he/she attempts to guess the word. Students must take turns to guess letters and even the word. After the word is guessed, the score is added to the weekly total for the winning team, and an explanation is given about the health related word.

Variations:

You may put some of the Wheel of Fortune words on the next test for extra credit.
