Of Mice and Men revision card game

Fun and addictive ‘Of Mice and Men’ revision tool that lasts 30-40 minutes to help students revise themes and quotes.

Students play as either George, Lennie, Candy or Curley and the aim is to achieve their dream. They play through 40 event cards, which will give them plus or minus DPs (dream points). If they can achieve positive DPs by the end of the game then they achieve their dream. If they don’t then they are doomed to a migrant worker life of working for other people.

This game helps students to revise key events in the book, important quotes and presses them to consider the challenges that characters face to achieve their dreams. Reflection questions for students are included.

This could easily be played multiple times, as each time there will be a different outcome to the game, and this will help to embed students’ knowledge of key quotes and themes.

It is a print and play game. It is quick and easy to cut out. I would suggest laminating for quick further use, however this is not required. The only additional materials you will need are one die per game and scrap paper for students to keep track of their scores.
