Pets board game with accusative adjective endings

This board game helps students to practise pets in German in the accusative case. The game works as follows:

  • Students throw 3 dice simultaneously (or 1 die could be used three times).
  • First die: student moves to the correct square.
  • Second die: student says the subject pronoun that corresponds to the number, as shown in the box at the bottom of the board (e.g. if they roll a 1, they would say ‘ich habe’, if they roll a 2, ‘du hast’ etc.).
  • Third die: student says the adjective ending, ensuring that they apply the correct ending based on the gender of the pet e.g. Ich habe eine kleine Maus.

To help students, each square is colour-coded to match gender i.e. blue - masculine; red - feminine; green - neuter.

There are a few squares that mean students have to go back to the start or miss a go. Students could decide in groups what happens if they make an error e.g. Ich habe EINEN klein Katze’, such as missing a go or moving back 3 squares.
