What’s the connection?

‘What’s the connection?’ is a fantastic literacy/ESOL game that provides students with the opportunity to explore links between groups of words.  The game can be adapted for low level learners as each word could be printed with its picture in order to help students recognise the word.

Can you figure out what these words have in common?

1.  Banana
2.  Dresser
3.  Grammar
4.  Potato
5.  Revive
6.  Uneven
7.  Assess

No, it is not that they all have at least 2 double letters..


Answer: In all of the words listed, if you take the first letter, place it at the end of the word, and then spell the word backwards, it will be the same word.
