Scattergories KS1/KS2 Grammar Game

Scattergories KS1/KS2 Grammar Game

I had so much fun playing Scattergories with friends that I just had to find a way to adapt it for the classroom. There are 2 different playing sheets (different questions) and each has a regular version or a version with hints on it (1.a, 2.a). Give each student a playing sheet with numbers to 11. Pick someone in the class to choose a letter (for example, b) all the students must then answer each question using a word beginning with that letter. For example, a synonym for mad = barking, A word ending in 'ies' = babies etc,. At the end of 2 minutes (use a timer with sound preferably) they must put down their pencils as you go through their answers as a class. They get 1 point for each correct answer. If you want to make it a bit more challenging have them partner up with the person beside them and they cannot choose the same word so if both pupils wrote 'baboon' as 'an animal' then neither gets the point. Most but not all of the questions are grammar or literacy related. I played this with a Year 2 class who loved it but this could be used with all age groups and edited to suit many topics (for example, you could create a science version ; famous scientist, element, unit of measurement etc,.) as well as edited to be easier/harder/to revise something previously covered. A great warm-up or treat at the end of a lesson. I also really like silly sentences as a finishing-up game which can be found here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/adjective-noun-verb-and-adverb-game-silly-sent-6267020

Find someone who...

Find someone who...

Find someone who worksheet used to encourage students to get to know one another and forms as an ice-breaker. Students go around the class trying to find someone who fits each statement on the worksheet. A good idea to come together at the end of the activity and discuss similarities amongst one another.
