Context: News, Politics &Government items

Level: L1, L2

Resource type: Game, Hands-on / practical activity, Interactive presentation

A Level 1/2 PPT quiz on commas. Some slides are based on persuasive-type texts so can also be used for purpose of text extension work, others are based on recent news items.

The game is multiple choice and based on colours. I use coloured hoops (as in hoola hoops) and bean bags. It can be team based or individual. Each player throws a beanbag into the hoop that corresponds with their chosen answer.

It’s kinaesthetic, suitable for adults (who have surprised me by how much most of them like these games) and fairly fast. Slides can easily be adapted to suit your students’ interests or vocational area.

Physical format: 
11 slides
