This game is designed to help students review sentence types and construct different variations of simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex sentences. This file contains a detailed lesson plan, review handout of the relevant grammatical concepts, and game pieces, as well as explicit instructions for playing the game and a homework assignment that builds on the lesson.
The game requires students to use the game pieces (described below this paragraph) to construct various sentence types. All game pieces are based on the story of Dr. McNinja, a character from a popular online comic.
The game pieces include cards printed with independent clauses, subordinate clauses, coordinating conjunctions, subordinating conjunctions, punctuation marks, and capitalization variations. A list of sentence type variations (e.g., "complex sentence that begins with a subordinating clause") is included in the game instructions.
