You’re on a Roll Vocabulary Game, grades 3–12. Students are given a list of vocabulary words and dice. They roll the dice, find the number for that vocabulary word and do the following: provide antonyms, ask a question, make a homework excuse, create a movie title, tell a joke, explain what book or TV character would use it, and even more fun ideas! This tactile game goes beyond memorizing definitions. Students think about how they can use words in real-life scenarios.
