This game is part of an ELA Game Bundle that you can find in my store for a discounted price!
This is a fun way to teach students to critically analyze text structure! My goal is to make my products easy to incorporate into the classroom with little prep work for the teacher. The colors are simple and easily print in black and white. Please take a look.
Common Core Objective: Students will describe the overall structure (e.g., chronology, comparison, cause/effect, problem/solution) of events, ideas, concepts, or information in a text or part of a text.
Students can work in groups of 2-4 players. You may have 2 students playing against 2 students or 1 student playing against another student. Having 2 students playing together will allow them the opportunity to discuss the clue words and explain how they determined the text structure. This would be beneficial for ELL students or students with special needs. Identify one student as Student A and the other as Student B. Detailed directions are included for the teacher and student. The student that correctly answers three in a row (just like tic tac toe with Xs and Os) wins! Answers are provided to check and students can replay multiple times. For a challenge, blank Text Features Sentence boxes are provided for students to create their own sentence.
I also have many other games in my store. My #1 best sellers are my Point of View 1st person, 2nd person, 3rd person (card game) and Tic Tac Toe games for Point of View, Fact & Opinion, and Cause & Effect. Please check them out if you need additional activities for whole group or small group instruction. Thanks!
