What is the Scramble Game activity?
Make a sentence out of words or a word out of letters
The aim of the Scramble Game is to put together a sentence from words or a word from letters, to be selected and put back in the same order. Beware, trick words or letters may be hidden in the answers given! The learner must therefore take care to find the correct answer for each question and to reconstruct it within the time allowed.
The Scramble Game is a knowledge-anchoring game. It allows the learner to better retain and assimilate concepts, acronyms or product names when it is a question of reforming words from letters. When a sentence is formed from words, the Scramble Game can also be used to learn a language, to anchor a company statement, a product tagline or a sales pitch.
