Grammatical Paper Balls


Found In: language arts, written composition, grammar & punctuation

Who would have thought a paper ball fight would be a useful technique for reviewing grammar? Have students write one of the four types of sentences (imperative, declarative, interrogative and exclamatory) on a piece of paper and crumble it into a ball. Before starting this activity, be sure to create safe guidelines that everyone understands. Then, have a well-structured paper ball fight for a minute or two. At the end of the fight, all the students must have a paper ball at their desk. They need to come up with five examples of the type of sentence that is written on their crumpled paper.
