Pictionary is another game similar to Taboo and Charades, but whereas Charades lends itself to vocabulary relating to actions that can be mimed, Pictionary is more suited to simple objects that the students can draw.

As with the other games, you prepare slips of paper with the words you want to review, and students take it in turns to pick a word. They draw the object on the whiteboard, and as soon as they start drawing, the other students start guessing what the object is. The first person to guess correctly wins a point and takes the next turn to draw.

It's always a good idea to demonstrate a new activity, as this is usually a lot simpler than giving verbal explanations. Once the learners are familiar with an activity like Pictionary, it can be an efficient way to  review recently-learned vocabulary.
