Use these Literature Trashketball Games to review literary elements (character, setting, plot, figurative language, sound devices, theme, etc.) in numerous classic novels! This bundle includes PowerPoint presentations that will help you review the following novels and plays: Animal Farm, Lord of the Flies, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Frankenstein, Of Mice and Men, To Kill a Mockingbird, A Raisin In the Sun, Tuck Everlasting, The Giver, and The Great Gatsby.
The diverse texts help you differentiate instruction and facilitate assessment of the varied reading of your students. Additionally, the game questions may be edited for the needs of your classes.
All that you will need is the ability to project a Power Point, a ball, dark tape, and a trash can. Complete these games after reading each novel or play and use them for review before tests and quizzes, or as their own assessment.
Research shows that students often learn best when they can move, and these games motivate them with their love of sports. When you put your students in heterogeneous groups for friendly competition, you meet the needs of all of your students and reward them for their success. In fact, these games are a useful way to involve your special education students and English Language Learners.
