Board Game Grammar

Introduction:
A game to review grammar, with a board for scoring and making things a bit more exciting.

 

What is learnt?
Can be used with varied grammar which is currently being taught to the students.


How the game is played:

  1. Get the students into groups of four. Choose a grammar area that they are working on at the moment. Ask each student to write, working alone, about six sentences from the grammar area. Three should be right and three wrong; see text below for an example produced by students.

  2. The students in their groups then pool their sentences and come up with a definitive list of sixteen, marked right or wrong. They check their list with you. Each student copies the list for the next stage. (The copying phase gives you time to check with all the groups.)

  3. Regroup the students: put a pair from one group with a pair from another to make a new group of four. Each student has their own copy of their sixteen-sentence list with them.

  4. Ask each group to create a board (16 squares):

  6. Each student gets a coin as a counter and puts it on square 1. Give each group a dice.

  7. The first player throws the dice and goes forward to the appropriate square. The opposing pair read a sentence and the player says whether they think it's right or wrong. A correct decision takes the player two forward, a wrong decision one back. The second player from the same team has a turn, followed by the players from the opposing team and so on. The first pair to both finish win.
