Determining when to use the modal verb can vs. may is a difficult thing, especially for English language learners since so much of the native speaking population doesn't do it correctly. This is the self-checking digital task card version of my Can or May? task cards. A Google Form version is also available, if you want to have your students' answers reported back to you.

These self-checking digital task cards include 24 sentences. To use make a copy for each student. The first slide instructs the students to put the slides into present mode. Slides will only advance when students click on either "can" or "may." After clicking their answer, students will be taken to a slide that tells them if they are correct or not, shows the correct answer, and provides a brief explanation. Answer slides will only advance when students click the "Next Question" button. This button will take them to the next question. The answer slide for question 24 does not have a button and students should simply exit the slide show. None of the questions or slide elements are editable.

Learn how I made these task cards in the blog post Digital Task Cards.

For more information about this, and other modal verb practice activities, see my blog post Modal Verb Practice.
