 Word Games: Rhyming Riddles






 Rhyming Riddle Sample Worksheet. 

Rhyming riddles are a fun source of comprehensible input and vocabulary building. Starting with a base word, students have to read clues and find words that fit the clues AND rhyme with the base word. For example, if the base word is air and the clue is a type of fruit, then the answer is pear because pear is a fruit that rhymes with air. This can also be played as a game where students are given a base word and then think up rhymes and clues to share with other students.
