This game board, one that I particularly delighted in thinking up, is hours of fun. The class is split into teams of five. Each team has to complete 5 tasks successfully to be released from the Tower of Doom. The tasks, represented by the images on the board, are on separate sheets and are as follows:
1. The Hidden Moon- Completing a worksheet on a particular part of speech
2. The Masked Man- Eliminating letters to find the hidden words, using clues
3.The Crossed Swords- Crossword Puzzle
4. Rapid Fire- Multiple Choice questions with a fiery time limit!
5. Tunnel out- A gap fill exercise
