Life-Sized Sentence Diagrams are a kinesthetic way to practice diagramming skills. Since the sentences come from your current work, it can be done at any level. Kids can't bluff their way through a sentence diagram, and this timed activity lifts diagramming off the page and makes it a fun activity filled with movement and suspense. The activity does not rely on competition if your class has a tendency to take that too far, but it can be played as team vs. team. If you do choose to use the activity as a competition, paper plate awards are a non-grade based way to celebrate the achievement of the winning team. A template is included on page 2.
