This game reviews the four sentence structures: simple, compound, complex, and compound-complex. This game can be used as formative assessment or for review before a final quiz. Moreover, when students learn sentence structures, they are able to improve their sentence fluency and writing.
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.
