Name That Category – The Pyramid Game in teaching vocabulary

Name That Category resembles the TV game show $100,000 Pyramid. The game helps
 students determine the common attributes of a list of vocabulary words so they can name the
category describing the terms.
Steps:
1. Divide a triangular template into six sections. Assign points to each section.
2. Identify pairs of students and select one student in each pair to begin as the clue giver.
Explain that the clue giver is the only one able to see the pyramid template with the
categories listed.
3. Cover categories at the beginning of the game. Uncover categories, one at a time, as they
are guessed.
4. Explain that as the clue giver gives clues associated with the category listed on the pyramid,
the guesser attempts to correctly identify the category. When the guesser is correct, the clue
giver moves on to another section of the triangle and repeats the procedure. A time frame of
30 seconds is given to guess each category.
5. Award the guesser the number of points labeled on each section. Award bonus points if
all categories are correctly identified.
6. Switch clue giver and guesser roles for each round played.
Adaptations:
• The pyramid template is placed on an overhead and sticky notes are used to cover
the category name. Once a team identifies the category and notifies you, remove
the sticky note for the next category and award points to the team with the correct answer.
Once all the categories have been correctly identified, the winning team yells “Pyramid!”
and the game stops. Teams are awarded the points they received during each category and
another round is started. The clue giver role rotates for every round.
• Other shapes are used instead of the pyramid which may reflect a season, holiday, unit,
or theme.
• Teams can beat their previous time in identifying the categories rather than competing
against each other for points
