How do you play Graduation Scattergories?

There are a couple of different ways that you can play the game. If you are playing with a larger group of people, such as in a classroom setting, you may wish to set a timer for 3-5 minutes before handing out the game page.

Note: you can also play the game on your own as well. It is just as fun of an activity!

At the top of the page you will see eight different categories.

  1. Movie
  2. Food
  3. College
  4. Animal
  5. Sport
  6. Career
  7. School Subject
  8. School Supply

The goal is to come up with a word for each of the eight categories that begins with each letter of the word GRAD.

Here are a couple of examples:

Let’s take category 2, “food.” For G you could say “grapes,” for O you could say “raspberries.”

Continue on with the rest of the letters and categories and until you fill in all of the blank spaces. Write down as many of the answers as you can before time is up. If you get stuck on a particular category, you can skip over it and come back to it later if you have enough time at the end.

Once time runs out, go around the room and compare your answers with all of the other players. If there is a person that has the same answer that you do, both people must cross that word off of their list.

The player that has the most unique answers at the end of the game, wins!

Free Printable Graduation Scattergories Game

This game is designed to be printed onto a standard 8.5×11 inch piece of paper or cardstock. Two games will print per page.

After printing, simply cut the two games apart using scissors or a paper cutter. This is the paper cutter that I currently have on my work desk and I definitely can recommend it.

Favorite Printable Supplies:

These are a few of my favorite supplies that I use for printable games and activities:

  • White Cardstock: For most projects, I recommend printing onto cardstock. It is much more durable than standard printer paper and often produces a higher quality print.
  • Crayons: A staple in any crafting household. Crayola is always the top notch choice!
  • Kid Friendly Safety Scissors: These are perfect for little kids learning how to use scissors. They cut paper but not fingers or hair!
  • Glue Sticks: These disappearing purple glue sticks are by far my favorite! I love buying them in bulk since we use them so often!
  • Lamination Machine: Laminating printables are a great way to make them last longer. If you are planning on laminating to make games reusable, be sure to get a bunch of dry erase markers as well.
  • Dry Erase Pockets: Dry erase pockets are a great alternative to using a lamination machine when wanting to make printable games and activities reusable.
  • Printer: A high quality printer is always recommended for the best results. If you are in need of a printer this Brother Wireless Printer is a great choice.
