Here’s another review game from Mido Farid. This time we save the Titanic!
The Titanic is sinking. Two or more teams try to get all their people off the ship before it goes down.
2. You can draw as many figures in the ship as you like. Use fruit or animals if you don’t like the idea of playing a game where people drown. You can even write simple words in the boat (if your students can read) and ask the students to name the things they want rescued.
3. Divide the class into two or more teams.
1. Choose a player to go first.
2. Ask this player a question (or to name a flashcard etc.) and then give him or her the dice to roll.
4. To rescue, simply erase the figures and redraw them quickly on one of the lifeboats.
5. Then let the opposing team roll.
6. Again rescue as many figures as the number on the dice.
7. Keep playing until all the people (or fruit or animals or words) are off the Titanic.
Note: to make the game more exciting give your class a time limit for getting people off the boat. Tell your students that the Titanic will sink in, for example, two minutes. This really helps to motivate students to answer your questions quickly.
1. Play with any vocabulary or sentence patterns.
2. To practice numbers.
Have fun – Mido
