Phrasal Verb Game - ESL Grammar Ideas

I thought of this game the other day when I was in class teaching Phrasal Verbs. It's
really simple.

  • Make a table (grid) with about 16 or 25 squares
  • Fill in the boxes with verbs and prepositions (Try for an equal amount of each)

Students work in teams and must choose a verb and a
preposition to make a phrasal verb. They need to give a definition and an example.

Give a point for each correct answer. As each team takes a turn to guess, erase the words from the grid. It will get more difficult as there are fewer words on the board.

This is a basic review exercise, but is a little more fun because the words are eliminated and some strategy can be incorporated.

Here is an example table for the phrasal verb game:
