Product Description

Your friend is sick!

Help him/her know what to do…

This board game allows students to practice expressions for making polite suggestions. It also gives practice with some common medical vocabulary. Depending on the proficiency of your students you may want to put some sentence starters on the board such as:

Why don’t you go…..?

Have you considered….?

You could take….

You should make…

I recommend talking…

I suggest that you get…

Maybe you could….

Perhaps you should…

I really recommend….

I strongly suggest that…

How to play the game:

  1. Print the game board and ailment cards (I suggest you also laminate them) and then cut the ailment cards apart. You will also need markers for each student (not provided) and a number cube for each group (not provided).
  2. Give each group of 2-4 students the game board, cards, markers and number cube. The ailment cards should be placed in a pile face-down and all markers placed on start.
  3. The first student takes the top card and makes a statement and gives a suggestion (ie: I’m sorry you have a headache. Maybe you should take an aspirin.) If the statement and suggestion are correct, the student rolls the number cube and moves the indicated number of spaces. If the statement and suggestion are not correct, the student’s turn is over and play continues.

The first student to reach finish is the winner.If students run out of ailment cards before reaching finish they should just shuffle the pile and keep playing.
