This interactive powerpoint game, The Helping Verb Zoo, will get your students engaged and talking about grammar in a meaningful way!
The Helping Verb Animals have escaped from the zoo, and it's up to your class to find them all! Students click on the animals that they think are helping verbs and the game will tell them if they were correct OR if it was not a helping verb.
Once the students have caught the correct helping verb animals, they must put them in their proper cages by completing ten different sentences. Students must look CAREFULLY to determine which helping verb best fits by looking at the subject and the tense of the sentence.
ANSWER KEY WITH EXPLANATIONS INCLUDED!
