Engage your students and review parallel structure (parallelism) with this fun game. There are four rounds. In rounds one and two, students identify whether the sentences are parallel or nonparallel. In rounds three and four, students rewrite the sentences to correct the nonparallel structures. All that you will need is the ability to project a Power Point presentation, a ball (soft texture), some dark tape, and a trash can.
Research shows that students often learn best when they can move, and this game motivates them with their love of sports. When you put your students in heterogeneous groups for a game with friendly competition, it is an excellent way to meet the needs of all of your students and reward them for their success.
Depending on the ability of your students, the game usually takes 45 minutes to play. The Power Point presentation includes the following slides: review slides, game slides, rules for the students, teacher instructions, and a key.
With this game, you will be amazed that your students will want to learn grammar! If you like this game, you may be interested in these other grammar Trashketball games:
