Name that Contraceptive! A Game for the Human Sexuality Classroom
Rosenthal, Martha S.
American Journal of Sexuality Education, v5 n2 p189-199 2010
There are many contraceptive choices available to people today. Learning about them can be dry, but the game "Name that Contraceptive!" can be a fun and interactive way to review, remember, and retain the details about contraceptive options. Name that Contraceptive is a card game in which students "bid" on the number of clues it will take them to correctly identify a method of contraception. Easy to prepare and to use, this game is appropriate for school-based or community-based sexuality students from high school to adulthood. It can be played with large or small classes. Using Name that Contraceptive will facilitate learning by helping students review the information, encouraging them to compare and contrast different categories of contraceptive methods, getting students actively engaged in the process, and by adding variety to the classroom experience.
