Students often find themselves overwhelmed with the amount of new words they have to learn when studying science. Why can’t we learn about dinosaurs and robots without having to memorize a bunch of definitions? Whatchamacology turns studying scientific terms into a fun, interactive game.
If you enjoy games like Password, Taboo, or Catch Phrase, you’ll love Whatchamacology. Get your team to guess scientific terms without using words from their typical definitions. Act out a scene; draw pictures; tell stories; use analogies. Earn points for each correct guess. The team with the most points before the timer runs out wins!
