Use the media hype of a sport's Big Game to motivate reading improvement.

Enjoyable, effective, and easy to make and use, this All Sports Activity is great for all ages.

The photo-caption matching game can be designed for any sport--the World Series, Super Bowl, Stanley Cup, the Olympics, NBA, World Cup, or other sporting events that include newspaper or magazine photos.

Using a very simple format, students will anticipate the next photo/caption matching game with great excitement.

If captions are too difficult, simply make your own, adapting to the level of the students who will use it.

One word titles can be made for lower level readers, while longer and more complicated captions of actions within the same sport can be challenging for higher level readers.

Complete directions for classroom use are included to make utilization easy for busy teachers.

Includes paper medals to award when completed and corrected.

Be sure to save photos from magazines and newspapers when the next big game arrives.
