It is a little more complicated to make and you will need a child with neat handwriting to write in the squares.
Children land on squares and have to talk about the subject written on the square.
Many of the subjects are non-threatening, e.g. talk about a film you like. Others are a bit more challenging, e.g. talk about something which frightens you.
Children can choose which squares they head for so no one has to talk about something they don't wish to talk about.
This game is particularly good for encouraging shyer pupils to join in.
Excerpt from Lesson:
- Divide the paper up into 60 squares. To do this, measure along each edge making a small mark every 5cm. Join the marks at the top to the marks at the bottom of the page with a ruler. Next, join the marks on the left side to the marks on the right of the page with a ruler. You should now have a 10 X 6 grid of 60 squares.
