Ludo Game

It’s almost the end of the school year, let’s play Ludo and practise Irregular verbs.

A typical Ludo game where players take it in turns to throw the dice in order to move their tokens round the board. As soon as the player throws 6 he/she has the option to start to move another token round the board. When the player’s token lands on the space that is occupied with another player’s token then that player has to remove the token from the board and wait until they have thrown a 6 to start again.

This way, while students play Ludo game board activity they practise irregular verbs as well. So, every time they move their tokens round the board they have to say the past and past participle of irregular verbs.

The winner is the first player to get their four tokens to the center of the board landing on their matching coloured area.

The lesson is developed in groups using the following board game.

Students are divided in groups of four. Each player needs a counter and each group needs a dice. The game begins by throwing the dice to decide who is going to start. They start and continue the game asking questions extending their answers making short conversations according to the answers in order to develop fluency. If the answer is correct, student’s counter remains at the same place, if the answer is incorrect, the counter returns to its previous square. Students take it in turns moving around the board until one student reaches the finish. The one who reaches the finish is the winner.
