Product Description
Irony is a tricky concept for many middle school students, but this fun review game gives kids valuable practice at distinguishing the difference between situational irony, dramatic irony, verbal irony, and no irony at all!

Students are split into groups, and each group is given 16 examples of irony. Each group then races to correctly sort the example cards into situational, dramatic, and verbal categories (along with a “no irony” category, because we all know the phrase that’s so ironic is the most misused phrase in history!). This game gets students talking about the differences and helps them recognize irony more easily when they encounter it in their assigned literature.

This product includes the following:

1 Cover Page
1 Instructions Page
2 Irony Example Pages (16 Cards Total)
6 Situational Irony Example Cards
3 Verbal Irony Example Cards
3 Dramatic Irony Example Cards
4 No Irony Example Cards
1 Label Page (4 Category Label Cards)
2 Answer Key Pages
1 Credits Page

Have fun with this ironic game!
NOTE: This game works best after the teacher has defined and explained irony to the class. It’s a fabulously fun review!
