Phrasal Verbs Mix and Match is a fun, simple way to practice phrasal verbs with more advanced students. Players just take turns selecting a verb and a preposition and try to make a sentence. Players receive a point when they create a valid phrasal verb and another point when they use it in context.
Teachers can easily make the game more challenging and relevant to their lesson plans by adding grammar points. For example, students only receive points for a question in the Present Simple or a negative sentence in the Past Continuous.
Play with it and have fun, and let me know what you think in the comments!
It’s easy to gamify this activity by adding a score board, or by turning it into points for another game. I usually play this game with Connect Four, but there are lots of ways to adapt this simple idea to suit your needs.
HOW TO PLAY:
Combine a verb with a preposition to make a phrasal verb, and try to use it in a sentence.
