Fake Out! is like an ongoing online game similar to "Balderdash." The game provides unusual (but REAL) vocabulary words that are categorized by grade levels: K-2, 3-5 and 6-8. Students choose a word and attempt to define it by choosing among several definitions provided. If students choose the wrong definition, they are given the correct definition as well as a tally of how many times others chose each definition that is listed. Students are also given an opportunity to "create" a definition for a word and submit it to Fake Out! Student-created definitions may show up in the definition list for others to choose from.

tag(s): vocabulary (315)

In the Classroom

Use this site as a discussion starter for word study-- what clues can help you guess what an unknown word might mean (prefixes, suffixes, roots, etc). You can also use it to reinforce dictionary skills by having students write definitions in a credible-sounding format. Take the site one step further and have students complete activities such as creating a story with the word, using the word in a sentence, acting out the definition or drawing a picture of the word. If you have a class wiki, allow students to add favorite new words to a wiki glossary throughout the year. Teachers of gifted will love this challenge for their highly-verbal

Students dream about becoming an inventor. This site shows that even the smallest item in life, such as the paper clip, was once invented by 'someone.' You can promote creativity and encourage 'thinking outside the box' through this site. Play the 'Which Came First' game at this site to see if you can guess which invention came first, especially in conjunction with a social studies class on the inventors and industrial revolution. (Warning: It's harder than you think!) Or you may opt to play the 'Invention Connection' game, a challenging activity that builds higher level thinking through attribute listing and looking for common characteristics of diverse inventions. For pure information and inspiration, click on the five featured inventors to find video footage and other information about their lives and inventions. You will need the Shockwave plug-in to play the 'Invention Connection' game.

tag(s): inventors and inventions (89)

In the Classroom

Use an interactive whiteboard to play the games in science class as you talk about inventions, engineering, and the inquiry process that drives them or as an interdisciplinary connection in your lessons on inventions and the Industrial Revolution.

Exercise your gray matter by solving one of the 12,000 'braingles' at this site. It purports to be the largest collection of puzzles, riddles, mind games, etc, on the Internet. Once you explore the site, you trust their word. The site is mobile phone and wii-friendly. Don't miss the section with SAT vocab (in Mentalrobics). There are articles on study skills and strategies such as clearing your mind before studying, "chunking" when reading, or various strategies to memorize material. Engage students into math and reading exercises through the endless riddles and puzzles at this site. They won't even be aware they are 'reading' or 'solving math.'

tag(s): brain (66), puzzles (205), riddles (16), vocabulary (315)

In the Classroom

Start class with a "warm-up" brain teaser. Or include this link on your teacher web page (with a caution about parental supervision for younger ones). Site creators claim the entire site is family-friendly, safe for classroom use. Portions of the site require membership, and the membership level that displays ads is free. You may want to set up a CLASS account and use it under controlled circumstances since there are forums and chat rooms, however. Or ask your tech folks to block the portion of the site that includes "community" in the URL (http://www.braingle.com/community/) to avoid having to deal with forums, chat rooms, etc.(If you are lucky enough to have such helpful tech support, make them cookies once in awhile!)

Registration is not necessary for reading the puzzles and clues. This site gives a lateral puzzle, and then the readers can ask questions to the original poster. Some of the "solved" puzzles could be used with younger students. However, the site is geared towards middle school and high school aged students.

The goal of this activity is to reach a "target number" from a starting number. Students are given a number and then have the options of doubling the number, dividing the number by 2, adding 3 or subtracting 5. Develop number sense and multiplication/division skills. This is a more difficult version of the game "Crazy Counter". Flash is required.

tag(s): addition (224), division (159), multiplication (209), subtraction (186), vision (79)

In the Classroom

Use it as a warm-up on an interactive whiteboard or projector before any math lesson or as reinforcement during a unit on multiplication or division. This is a definite link for your teacher web page. You will develop number addicts!
