'Dream Catchers' - Of Mice and Men revision card game

'Dream Catchers' - 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. Included: - How to play card - Character profiles sheet - Event cards - Reflection questions Leave a review and choose any other resource for free from the LikeAnExpert shop.

Introduction to Poetry - Knowledge Organiser

Introduction to Poetry - Knowledge Organiser

This knowledge organiser is designed to include key information about an introduction to poetry clearly and on one page. I have used it in year 7, however it is relevant for an introduction to poetry unit at any age. I have used it in many ways - students can use it to revise from for homework, it can be used for quizzes (using it in conjunction with bingo works very well), it can be put on the classroom wall and referred to or it can be used as a stimulus for further research. It may act as inspiration as you design your units of work. If you find it useful in your classroom, I would be really grateful if you would leave it a review and let me know how you have used it.
