ULEAD JR/CLASSIC ACTIVITY
Preselect a group of 9 or 16 cards. Make sure that there is a selection of vowels with the cards. Give each person a piece of paper and a writing utensil. Place the cards in a 3×3 or 4×4 grid with the letter side face down. When all the participants are ready. Flip the cards over and give them 2 minutes to create as many words as they can using the Boggle method of linking letters that are connected to each other either adjacent or diagonal. See how many words each person can write down in the time limit.
