An active PowerPoint game to practice working with contractions.

Your students will love practicing contractions with this active game!

How to Play:

  • Print out the recording sheets for your students. You can also have them record their answers on whiteboards for a paperless game!
  • Display Question 1 on presentation mode and have the students record their answers. You can choose to complete the questions together or have the students complete them on their own for a fun assessment.
  • When you come to a THIS OR THAT slide, the students make a choice and walk to the wall based on the arrow. Then, they will return to their seats to answer more questions. It’s a quick and simple game that requires no scorekeeping and gets the students up and moving!

A complete set of instructions, a recording sheet, and an answer key are all included in the download.
