I do "Blackout" to help my classes memorize lyrics to a song. I print out the words on my computer, then run it through the projector and show it on the wall or screen. Next, I black out a few words with a marker and let them sing the song. Then, I black out some more words and let them sing the song again. I repeat this process until all the words are blacked out. My kids like learning the lyrics this way.

If you don't have a projector, you can write the words on the board and just erase the words.
