Suitable for form time (designed with my vertical Y7 to Y11 form in mind) - print onto card, chop, distribute cards between pupils, they keep them face up on the desk until they've read it out, then they turn it face down. Anyone with cards still facing up at the end signifies an error somewhere in The Loop! Time them and see if they can beat their own time, or against other forms. Excellent memory aid too...
Excellent little activity for students to choose best fit / synonym / missing word from a choice. BRILLIANT and engaging, adapt it for any topic, any level of ability, really fun and students learn a lot from this!! If you choose the right options, you create six packs of cards, if you go wrong you can't close the loop and finish the activity. Super for vocabulary building.
Sorry - just noticed I have some errors in my spreadsheet - please correct &'BauarbeiterIN&'; and 'Sauer&' - should be lower case &';sauer'.
