On the Spot Game Board for Expository Nonfiction by Teacher See Teacher Do is a versatile tool for active participation. Students work in pairs or trios to practice, review or assess comprehension of expository text.
The activity requires a game board, a die and a chip or other sort of marker for each player. Students roll the die to see how many spaces to move. The question written in the circle is answered and verified by team members. If correct, the student earns the number of points on the die. If not, a students turn is lost, points are void and it is the next player's turn.
As an extension, I have asked students to begin from the start, roll the dice 5 different times and write the answer for the corresponding spots on a 'ticket out' of class.
Enjoy this active participation comprehension game!
It is also very suitable for tutoring sessions, and other intervention and small group instruction.
