PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

TOUCHDOWN! Get your students excited about scoring touchdowns while reviewing metaphors, similes, and personification.

The game includes game cards, football field game board, football markers, assessment worksheet and answer sheet. It is recommended to print the documents on cardstock and then laminate for durability. Check out the preview file to get a glimpse at some of what the game includes. Another game by Judy Kvaale.

Judy,
I have purchased many of your wonderful games. This one I think you forgot to number the game cards so the game is self-checking. Answer key is numbered, but cards are not?

My students LOVED this game. They asked me to come up with more things like this. It just made it so easy because all the graphics that you "could" put together yourself are already done for you. We know time is money, so this was money well worth it!

How many question cards are included in this package? Is there a place on the gameboard to place the cards, or are they just separate. Thanks-hoping to purchase, but create a file-folder game.
