A fun comprehension strategy board game for students to play during literacy rotations.
Students work their way toward the finish by answering a range of text-related questions on the game board and by collecting and answering as many comprehension ‘key’ cards. The student with the most amount of comprehension ‘keys’ at the end of the game is the winner!
As the questions in the game are open-ended for any text, answers have not been provided.
