Halloween Taboo Card Game

I made these fun Halloween cards to use with my elementary and junior high school students. I initially made these cards from the idea of the game "Taboo," which is where the player who draws the card cannot say the actual card itself or the "taboo word" that is listed at the bottom of the card. To get my students speaking, I divide my class into groups and have one student go for one minute where they draw a card and try to describe their card without saying the "taboo" words. If their teammates can guess the word, that card is given to whoever guessed the word and the same student continues drawing and describing their card before their minute is up.

My students always get riled up playing with the cards this way but I've been able to use these cards in a variety of ways, apart from just the "Taboo" gameplay. With a little creativity, I'm sure you'll be able to find new and unique ways your students can enjoy these cards too!

The present printable, downloadable handout is meant for at Elementary (A1) and Intermediate (B1) level. It is useful for honing your groups' Speaking skills. It centers around the topic and words of Halloween.
