Brief Outline: Students gamble whether or not the given sentences are correct.


Materials Needed:


Detailed Explanation:

  1. The students all start with a set amount of money.  I use $20 but you can use any country's money you want.  The students bet between $1 to $5 whether or not they can correctly re-write the sentences. (Note: Some of the sentences will not need corrections. Hopefully, the students will recognize that, and re-write the senteces just as they are.)
  2. Once the students have finished betting and completing the worksheet, write the correct sentences on the blackboard. The students check the answers against their own. If their sentence matches the sentence on the board, they add the money they wagered to their total.  Likewise, if their sentence does not match the sentence written on the board, they subtract their bet from their total dollar amount.
  3. Check by a show of hands who made the most money.
