While reading about Thanksgiving traditions, students review nouns, verbs, adjectives, adverbs, and prepositions in this fun, active game. All that you will need to play is the ability to project a PowerPoint presentation, a soft ball, dark tape, and a trash can.
In this game, there are five rounds. In each round, students identify a part of speech in the context of a sentence; the sentences increase in difficulty and complexity throughout the game. For an extra challenge, the teacher may ask students for additional identifications (e.g., common vs. proper noun, active vs. being verbs, nouns modified by adjectives and adverbs, and prepositional phrases).
This PowerPoint presentation includes the following:

Research shows that students often learn best when they can move, and this activity motivates students further by tapping into their love of sports. Using heterogeneous groups to play a game with friendly competition is an excellent way to meet the needs of all of your students and reward them for their success.
