Reading Review Roundup
This game is good for reviewing a short one page reading on a non fiction subject like a brief biography. Play the game after you have done some work on the reading with the students already and they have a general idea. (good for low intermediate students)
Have them write about 10 key facts from the story in groups of four. Then have them make up questions for these facts. Make a team for each group of four. Write a scoresheet on the board. Award one point for the question and one point for correct wording of the question. One point for the answer and one point for correct wording of the answer. Go from one group to the other, question, answer, question, answer. The group with the greatest points wins. Students have gotten very excited about this and very competitive, but in a fun way, and it is also a very good review for understanding the reading.
