A simple team game, played ideally with a fairly short text.
In the example here (see image above and live example below) I have chosen to affect 1 in 3 spaces in the text (i.e. 2 in 3 spaces between words are already present) and students have 48 more spaces to find.
Divide the class into 2 teams and select a member from each team in turn to play.
- Students from each team take turns to click up to 3 (or 5?) times. The idea is that they can choose how many times to click, up to the agreed maximum.
- They can click at any point in the text (i.e. it doesn't have to be word by word.)
- They score a point per correct click, but an incorrect click ends their team's turn and means 0 points for that turn.
- The team that clicks the last remaining space and finishes the activity gets an additional 10 points.
Here is a live example:
Try it and let me know how it goes :0)
