how to play

This flashcard game idea can be adapted to any language concept (in this case, to our Going Shopping topic). The instructions below are just a starting point to inspire you.

  • Draw a scoring table on the board.
  • Put question cards in three piles ( a yellow pile, a green pile, and a blue pile) face down.
  • Divide students into two teams.
  • Each team takes a turn by choosing the level of the difficulty.
  • Easy questions are worth one point, medium questions are worth two points, and hard questions are worth three points.
  • The team with the highest score is the winner.
