Choose your home! – Board game
This board game will allow your students to interact, play in teams and review the necessary vocabulary to talk about buildings and houses in online and offline classrooms.
How to use this activity?
Play as a group. The PDF comes with the game board, the scoring mechanism, and examples of dwellings.
Divide your students into three teams and make a game piece for each team. If you are using ZOOM, you can use the annotate option while screen sharing. I choose the transparent ellipse when I play these board games.
Have the teams each choose one of the dwellings to describe on the left. Place the game pieces on the starting positions. Teams take turns navigating the web of topics moving only between bubbles that are directly connected.
For each bubble, a member of the team describes that particular part of their dwelling. If it is grammatically correct, the team earns a point. If a teammate can add something more, they can earn a second point. The first team to get 10 points wins.
It takes a team of 13 to create and produce this material. In order for that to continue, please think about purchasing your own subscription to ESL Expertz and encourage your colleagues to do the same. We appreciate your confidence and support!
