OUTLINE: Students play a board game in groups reviewing their grade syllabus.



  • GrandSugorokuReview Grades: 2 / 3 
  • GrandSugorokuAnswers Grades2 /3 
  • Dice (One per group) 


  1. Before the lesson print out the Grand Sugoroku Answers for the appropriate grade level and make answer cards to be placed on a desk in the middle of the class. You could make a set for each group but i've found one communal set to be enough. You need to write the number of each answer on the back of each card.
  2. Break the class up into go into groups of about 6 or 7 and pass out a board game for each group. I have found that it works best if you also put the students into pairs teams of three within this group because there are usually a few students who lack the confidence/knowledge to compete by themselves.
  3. The board game itself is pretty straight forward. Its called Sugoroku in Japanese. A student throws a dice and then moves his/her counter the appropriate amount of spaces. After answering the question they check the answer card. If they are correct they move forward one space. If they are incorrect they move backwards two spaces. First to the end wins.



  • It's up to you as to whether or not you insist you have to land precisely on #54 to finish.


  • Preteach 'mice.'
  • Some questions, like question #2 in the second grade review, are Amagasaki-specific so its probably a good idea to edit those ones.


  • It takes quite a lot of preparation but once you have the materials made you don't actually have to do very much in the lesson because the students check the answers for themselves.
