Classroom Starter – World Cup Doubles

Who doesn’t love a bit of ‘Consequences’? Mixing lots of stories together can result in total hilarity and spark great imaginative ideas too. This classroom starter gives the classic game a fun, football flavour. And there is plenty of room for extra educational elements (see the ‘Even Better If’s below).

World Cup Doubles (Play in Groups of 2-6)

Fold 1: The Name of Player 1

Pass it on!

Fold 2: The Name of Player 2

Pass it on!

Fold 3: Where? A description of the location.

Even Better If: Encourage kids to use adjectives to give lots of setting detail.

Pass it on!

Fold 4: What did Player 1 say to Player 2?

Even Better If: Get kids to perfect their dialogue punctuation and use creative alternatives to ‘said’.

Pass it on!

Fold 5: What did Player 2 say to Player 1?

Pass it on!

Fold 6: What did Player 1 do next? (This should end with a pass to Player 2 to promote teamwork)

Pass it on!

Fold 7: What did Player 2 do next?

Pass it on!

Fold 8: What was the consequence?

Even Better If: Encourage kids to use adjectives and adverbs to give lots of emotional detail about celebrations etc.

Pass it on!

Finale: Get the kids to read out their stories to the class.

If you try this in the classroom, do get in touch and let me know how it goes!
