Assign each student a vocabulary world (some may duplicate).
Each student will make a Trading Card. A picture and the word on one side; definition on the other.
Have students line up in pairs facing each other. Students will teach their partner the vocabulary word, then trade cards. After students have taught and traded one line will move one person to the right, and repeat the teach and trade. Repeat for 5-8 rotations so students become familiar with multiple words.
