You need two teams of 1-4 to play this game, one team plays as Xs, the other as Os.
Draw a Tic Tac Toe grid on the board and write in each square one of the items to be reviewed.
Teams take it in turns to choose a square. After consulting with the team a player makes a sentence using the chosen word in the correct form. If the sentence is correct, place an X or O in the square depending on the team. If the sentence is wrong the square stays in play.
The winner is the team which manages to connect three Xs or Os in a row – either horizontally, vertically or diagonally.
