The table below shows the different vocabulary words used in the British and American versions of English.  For example, a British person would use the word "rucksack" to describe a large bag with two shoulder straps that many school children use to bring their books to school.  An American would call this same kind of bag a "backpack". 

Directions:

Fill in the blanks in the table below with the correct the British English or American English vocabulary word.  When finished, scroll down to the comments section and check your answers.
