Everyone loves the game of Monopoly. It is a fun way to get students moving! And it incorporates French Culture.
This game includes 24 historical French places in France and 24 community chest and chance cards.
Hang each card on the walls around the gym.
Begin by dividing students into pairs.
Place two-three large dice in the middle of the gym.
Once the whistle is blown one member of the pair will run to the middle of the gym to roll one dice.
Each student must move clockwise, advancing the number of squares that appears on the dice.
Once they arrive at the square, they are to perform the activity on the card.
After completing the activity the other student runs to the center and rolls the dice again.
If someone has landed on a Chance or Community Chest square they go to the teacher, at go, for a card. The students will then do as the card says.
Points are given to a team each time they pass go. Points can be given or taken away through the Chance and Community Chest cards.
The game continues for the allotted amount of time.
This game is so fun, the students don't realize the amount of work they are putting in. They will be sweating by the end of the period. Make sure to include stretches at the beginning and end of each period.
