Health Vocabulary Board Game

Test your students’ knowledge of health and illness vocabulary with this simple health vocabulary board game. All the questions are in the form of simple riddles.

In this health vocabulary board game, we have tried to condense some useful vocabulary related to health and illness into very small riddles which are relatively open-ended, allowing for multiple answers for each space on the board. It may look simple, but it is definitely not for your beginners! Try this with your intermediate to advanced students to test their English vocabulary.


  1. Display the PDF for all to see and use your whiteboard tools to create game pieces for each player. If you are in the classroom, put students into small groups to play together.
  2. Students take turns rolling a die and advancing their piece that number of squares. To stay on the square, they must give an answer to the riddle. If more than one player lands on the same square during the game, they should give a different answer than the previous one(s).
  3. If a student is stumped, they return to their original square to try again on the next round.
  4. The first student to the FINISH wins.

I have been teaching English abroad since receiving my CELTA certificate in Poland in 2018. I enjoy tracking my individual students’ development but love having lessons with big groups! Now that I teach online, I am accompanied by my sidekicks Olaf, Mała, Pirate and Bandit on a regular basis.

It takes a team of 13 to create and produce this material. In order for that to continue, please think about purchasing your own subscription to ESL Expertz and encourage your colleagues to do the same. We appreciate your confidence and support!
