Phrases and Clauses: Cup Stacking Competition
If you're looking for a fun, hands-on way to teach, assess, or review phrases and clauses, try this one! My students LOVE a good competition.
Using the phrases and clauses provided, students will separate their stack of cups into stacks of dependent clauses, independent clauses, and phrases. You can have them split them into further stacks if you'd like as well - adjective and adverb clauses, participle/gerund/infinitive phrases, etc.
Students love the action; you'll love the quick and easy assessment!
