Time:  30 minutes


  • Make one copy of the Game Board for each group.



Ask the students to get into groups of 4 or 5 people.


Give one Game Board to each group. 


Ask students to get two coins for their group, and a space marker for each person.

How to use the coins:

Heads + Heads = Move 1

Tails + Tails = Move 2

Heads + Tails = Move 3


Ask the students to put their space markers on Start. The first student flips the coins, moves the corresponding number of spaces on the game board, and follows the instructions.


  • Prompt = student on left uses the prompt to ask a question to the student who landed on the space. The student answers the question using an adverb of frequency and a time expression.
