Game Design, Gamification, Learning Design and Assorted Other Strangeness

Phonetic journey

I missed yesterdays update which has made me more determined to get the other ones done.

This exercise is based on minimum pairs, words which only have one sound difference.

The teacher puts some minimum pairs on the board. The students then can copy them into the spaces to tell them to turn left or right.

Example

man turn left                                                            men turn right

The students listen and try to follow the path to the animal at the end.
