It’s octopus versus jelly fish in this fun activity! Students practice different parts of speech as they try to deflect the invading jellyfish. Each jellyfish has a different word in it. Acting as the octopus, students must activate the fire laser beam and destroy the jellyfish whose word corresponds with the type of speech that is placed in the octopus. If the jellyfish reach the octopus before it is destroyed, the game ends.
Verb Viper
This viper is hungry for some correct grammar! This game encourages students to recognize verb tenses, verb form, and identify subject/verb agreement. Subjects are placed above the viper and a stream of verbs is headed towards the viper’s mouth. Students must identify if a subject is singular or plural, then match it with the correct verb tense. Once they decide on the proper verb tense, they must make the viper bite down on it!
