A Love Story – Board Game

Write a love story! Choose the type of love story you would like to write and then navigate the board game filled with elements in order to complete your masterpiece.

How to use this activity?

Thinking about my own love story got me thinking about all the little elements that go into a good one. So I made a list of the elements that are a part of mine and used them in a little writing activity for my students.

In this activity, three teams, or three students, will choose a type of love story to write from the list on the left and then make their way through the board using the elements to write their love story. This could also be a speaking activity where each member of the team must take the mantle of the story from his predecessor and continue.

My love story is on this board game (hint: starts with “Iceland”), but I hope your students can make some really fun stories, too!

      We’d love to read some examples of love stories written by your students someday 🙂

I have been teaching English abroad since receiving my CELTA certificate in Poland in 2018. I enjoy tracking my individual students’ development but love having lessons with big groups! Now that I teach online, I am accompanied by my sidekicks Olaf, Mała, Pirate and Bandit on a regular basis.

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!
