List of 500+ Fun, Cool and Interesting Words

What a great list! My students loved to power write, where we would pick a word and they would just write whatever came into their heads, lists of words, thoughts anything, no grammar etc for 5 minutes. It was always a hit each week. Some of these would be fun for that. But how inspiring just to pick one of these and write say a paragraph on zepplin or zigguart…zigzag… ready set go!
