Each center includes two passages that are paired in some way and a themed game board. The game board includes 11 questions. Some of the question are for Text 1, some for Text 2, and some for Both Texts. The questions are labeled according to which text(s) are needed to answer them. The center also includes an answer key with example answers.
There are a few options for using these centers:
Option 1: Print the passages to the students and give them to them at the beginning of the week. Have the students read the passages prior to going to the center. Then when they come to the center, they are ready to play the “game” and answer the questions. The passages could even be read whole group or sent home for homework.
Option 2: This option works well if the students will have a chance to go to the center 3 times a week. The first 1 or 2 days the students will read the passages and discuss. Then on the 2nd or 3rd day, the students will “play” the game.
I have also included several options for how the students will play the game for you to choose from. You can check these out as well as a closer look at the centers in the preview file.
