- I've printed this on A3 paper and laminated multiple copies.
- Dice (you can buy packs of dice at 100 yen shops)
Divide students into groups of 3-4 members.
- Students will use an eraser to mark their spot on the board. They roll the dice, move spaces, then change the sentence based on the grammar point.
- If they land on a bomb, they go back to the beginning.
- The yellow spaces are extra tricky and will cause the player to move to a bomb space (aka start over).
I've used this for various grammar points for 1st-3rd JHS. They can get progressively more challenging. For example:
"She (cook) dinner" can become...
* 1st - "She cooks dinner" or "She cooked dinner"
* 2nd - "She finished cooking dinner" or "She knows how to cook dinner"
* 3rd - "This is the dinner she cooked" or "She has finished cooking dinner"
I (inadvertently) made the game design quite difficult, so it takes about 20 minutes for someone to reach the end. I've also noticed my students become more interested in winning than practicing English, so be sure to keep them on track.
It's also a nice chance to give stickers as prizes for students who win! :)
I made this in Google Drawings, feel free to use the link to Make a Copy to edit.
