ESL Noun Clauses Game - Speaking: Forming Sentences from Prompts, Freer Practice - Group Work - Intermediate (B1) - 25 minutes

In this fun noun clauses game, students listen to sentence pairs and race to change them into single noun clause sentences. Students take it in turns to pick up a card and read the two sentences at the top of the card, e.g. 'Was he lying?' 'We couldn't tell'. The other students listen and race to create a single noun clause sentence from the two sentences. The first student to say the correct sentence written at the bottom of the card wins and keeps the card, e.g. 'We couldn't tell whether he was lying'. If no one is able to guess the correct sentence, the answer is revealed and the card is removed from the game. The student with the most cards at the end of the game wins.

ESL Noun Clauses Board Game - Grammar and Speaking: Unscrambling, Asking and Answering Questions from Prompts - Group Work - Upper-intermediate (B2) - 25 minutes

Here is a free noun clauses board game to help students practice forming and using noun clauses to give noncommittal responses. In the game, students ask questions and score points by forming and using noun clauses to give noncommittal responses. Students take it in turns to roll the dice and move their counter along the board. When a student lands on a square that contains a scrambled question, they unscramble the question and ask it to the group members, e.g. 'Who is that?' The other group members then race to form a noncommittal response to the question using one of the sentence frames in the bank and a noun clause. The first student to write an appropriate and grammatically correct response on their paper and say the reply wins, e.g. 'I don't know who that is'. If it is the first time the winner has used that particular sentence frame, they score two points. If the winner has used that sentence frame previously, they score one point. The first student to reach the 'finish' square scores an extra three points and the game ends. The student with the highest score wins.
