Description of Idea

There are a few different options with this activity. With the worksheet, you can choose to just give the worksheet out to students to do for an assignment. You can actually print out and laminate the cards provided in the document and let students play the popular Mad Gab game as a whole class or in groups. If you decided to do smaller groups, multiple sets of cards would need to be printed. Printing the cards can be tricky since you want to make sure the correct term is being printed on the back of each card. The following is a list of which pages need to be printed together:

Pages 1 and 5
Pages 2 and 6
Pages 3 and 7
Pages 4 and 8
Pages 9 and 14
Pages 10 and 15
Pages 11 and 16
Pages 12 and 17
Pages 13 and 18.

Pages 1 and 2 of "Health Mad Gab 1" need to be printed back to back and are for the students to write on. Pages 3 and 4 are the answer choices for the students and also need to be printed back to back. The rest is strictly for the teacher. The other pages include a key and a list of the terms and their definitions.
