Want a new way to cover the parts of speech and certain grammar things? This is a great way to mix up the normal review that allows students to work in groups to put together a puzzle of terms and their definitions.
Students simply match the term and the definition together, forming a 4x4 grid when they're done. I always do this in the first week of school to allow students to do something new and different, gauge their understanding of the topics, and see how they work in groups.
1. Parts of speech
2. Punctuation marks
3. Sentence parts--clause, phrase, subject, gerund, object, and infinitive
*I recommend printing on card stock and laminating for most life out of this activity.*
