In pairs or groups of three, students compete against each other for a set period of time to see who can find the most words on their Boggle boards. Each student has their own recording sheet, however they only need one game board per pair/group which is given face down and not turned over until the time starts. Words can be spelt forwards, backwards or with any letter squares that are touching. Students write their words on the recording sheets while the teacher keeps a track of the time elapsed. At the end of each round students compare recording sheets and see who has the most ‘real’ words.
- Full instructions
- 12 different boards so you could play it for 2 rounds each on 3 or 4 days and still not repeat a board.
- a blank board for you to create more of your own games
- 3 recording sheets for varying number of letter words depending on the grade you are teaching.
I’ve played this game with many classes ranging from year 2 to 5 and even the noisiest class was completely silent as they were concentrating and trying to find more words than their partner. They loved it!
