Bored with grammar instruction? Engage students as they review clauses with this fun game! Rounds one through three each review a different type of clause (noun, relative, adverbial). In round four, the difficulty increases as students must identify and note multiple types of clauses—noun, adjective (relative), and adverb—in the sentences.
In between rounds, students compete to shoot baskets into your classroom trash can! All that you will need to play is the ability to project this PowerPoint presentation, a soft ball, some dark tape, and a trash can. This activity is effective for guided practice after clauses have already been introduced, and the game can be followed by independent practice.
Furthermore, to make the topic more interesting, this game includes informational text about the colony of Mexican free-tailed bats in Austin, Texas.
This PowerPoint presentation includes the following:
-concept review (including subordinate, restrictive and nonrestrictive clauses)
-game rules for students
Brain-based research shows that students often learn best when they can move, and this activity motivates students further by tapping into their love of sports. Using heterogeneous groups to play a game with friendly competition is an excellent way to meet the needs of all of your students and reward them for their success.
