Word Revolution


Grade 5/6: Word Revolution (Literacy/Language) - Starting 14 February 2017


The world has become polluted with too many words. Organisations are overrun by millions of emails and we are running out of paper because of all the long documents being printed. Television channels and city streets are over-crowded with excess words. There are so many words in schools that there is no time for breaks anymore. It has to stop! 

The government has created a new department called the ‘Ministry of Words’ to deal with this problem. The Ministry of Words has decided to reduce the number of words available for use to fifteen. This rationing of words will apply to everyone throughout the world.  

Your team has been appointed by the Ministry of Words to decide which fifteen words are to be included in the new dictionary. You will need to explain your choices and show how the rationing of words may affect different parts of our society. In addition, you will have to choose two different methods for presenting your findings. You may choose to present through poetry, humour, mime, music, costumes or some other method. Whatever the case, you’ll have to think carefully and be convincing. Can you do it?
