Use the media hype of a sport's Big Game to motivate reading improvement!
This 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.
Once students are familiar with the format, they will anticipate the next photo/caption matching game with great excitement. If captions are too difficult, simply make your own, as I have done several times, 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.
Includes paper medals to award when completed and corrected.
