The Chrysalids- Chapter 13 Review Game


The Chrysalids Game for Chapter 13 is the perfect addition to any novel unit!  Students answer questions about important concepts and information from the novel in an Animated Chalkboard-themed game that will engage even the most reluctant learner.  

According to research, using games when teaching increases student participation, comprehension, as well as fostering emotional and social learning.

Today’s 21st- century student needs to be fully engaged in learning to gain knowledge and then apply it in meaningful ways. Many teachers find that traditional comprehension questions are not engaging and often do not reinforce understanding. Both teacher and student often find answering the traditional chapter questions tedious and uninteresting.   

Help your students become fully engaged with John Wyndham’s “The Chrysalids” by incorporating these short, fun games into your unit.  

This game is also available as a bundle to save you time and money. Check out the bundle and where games for every chapter in the novel are included. Click here.

The game includes 12 quality questions that check the student’s understanding and are varied to include:  

  • Important vocabulary and terms
  • Symbolism
  • Irony
  • Foreshadow
  • Literary elements
  • Plot 
  • Characters
  • Quotes
  • Everything you would ask in traditional comprehension questions

The games created are interactive, engaging, and varied to maintain student interest. Each game includes a different theme with different challenges. Some games have game-show quiz-style questions, while others are like mini breakout rooms. Even better, the games require no preparation for the teacher. Other than an internet connection, nothing else is required! Merely share the game link with students, and they’re off to work on their own. The games also inform students of the correct answer to all questions, so they will learn the necessary information before moving on to subsequent material.

Students can play these games as a group or individually. Create a class challenge to see who can complete the games in less time. The possibilities are endless! These games are also a great way to engage students in learning online.

The activities will take 5 to 10  minutes, depending on the game and the student’s abilities.

I love doing this activity at the beginning of my lessons to review the previous chapter, which facilitates discussions and class activities.

The games can be played on any PC, laptop or tablet, Smartphone, Mac, or Chromebook. Anything that can access the internet can be used to access the games.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Speech Therapy Game – Build a Robot Game”

by Kathy Babineau
Pre-Kindergarten – 4th Grade

Play this fun speech therapy game and Build Unique Robots! This easy and versatile Build a Robot game is a motivator and attention holder in small group lessons. Kids have fun building their own unique robot creatures as they take turns rolling the dice and assembling their robots in this game activity. The handy chart tells players what robot parts to place on their mats. The first player to complete a robot wins. This game can be played independently by students or can be used during a small group lesson or in a speech therapy group to keep kids on task and motivated.

Kids like to build their own robots and then describe how the robots look once completed. The game often sparks imaginative minds that want to chat about what their robots are like or what powers their robots might have.

To use this, print out multiple copies of the black/white completed robot and laminate. Then print out single pages of the colored robot parts pages and the page with the dice chart. Cut apart the robot pieces and laminate. Once prepared this game can be used over and over.

To play the game you will need a die that goes up to the number 6. and a black/white robot template. Place the colored robot pieces in the center of the table. Players take turns rolling the die. Using the dice chart, the players will select a robot piece based on what they roll. For example, if you roll a 3, you get a belly. Players place the colored pieces on their black/white robot template. The first player to complete his/her robot wins.

I like to use this build a robot game in small group speech/language therapy activities. After each student answers a question, or says his/her target sound correctly, he/she may roll the dice. The game can be used with any small group lesson. This set can also be used in independent center activities.
