Semantris is part of Google’s Artificial Intelligence project that offers a couple of word association games that might be fun for you and the students:

  • Arcade is a fast-paced game in which you’re given a list of words. One of the words in the list is highlighted. The user is asked to type a word associated with the highlighted word, which reorders the words, putting the closest matches to your word on the bottom. If you moved the target word to the bottom, it blows up a few words and adds some more.
  • Blocks is a Tetris-like game that has some added strategy. Users input words with the intent of clearing blocks from the screen, which is how points are awarded.
