Product Description
This package includes a powerpoint game and two worksheets to practise literary terms. This game is a more basic version of the other Literary Terms Concentration Game in my store. It is suitable for eighth, ninth or tenth grade English classes. I have used it with my English I Honors classes with great success. Concentration games are excellent ways to review terms and identify matching pairs. Based on the board game Concentration, the game provides matching pairs made up of a literary term on one slide and examples of that term on another slide. Some of the terms used in the game are metaphor, image, hyperbole, symbol, and simile. The game also includes a number of story elements such as setting and theme. The examples for the terms in this game are about a vampire named Barnabas Collingwood (a play on the vampire in "Dark Shadows"). The vampire theme is a draw for students and increases the level of engagement. One example: on slide 5 appears the word "theme." On slide 20 appears the following: All stories about Barnabas Collingwood have the same message: Being a vampire is a sad way to live. There are ten matching pairs in total. The first game board slide functions as an anchor throughout the game to which all the matching pairs are linked, so the play proceeds very much as on a board. One major advantage of playing as a class is the teacher, running the game, has the opportunity to guide and instruct as the play proceeds. The competition that arises between teams during the a whole class game adds to the drama and makes this way of reviewing an extremely effective classroom tool. The package includes: the pptx file with the game, a file that can be copied and cut up to play as a board game, instructions on how to play powerpoint concentration, and pdfs with charts of all the slides. The included worksheets include one that functions as a good introduction, asking students to match terms with their definitions and one that asks students to create their own examples of the terms.
