First you will need to draw a grid on the board 10*10 or 6*6, whatever.

Next you will need some cut outs of dinosaurs and humans . About 1-3 dinosaurs and 5-6 humans.

Place them randomly on the board.

You will also need a dice or a pack of cards (only numbers Ace to 6)

Next divide the class into teams. One team will be the dinosaurs and the other team will be the humans.


You ask the students questions. The team that answers then gets to throw the dice or choose a card. The number is the number of squares the dinosaur or human can move. They then decide which dinosaur / human to move.

They should tell the teacher which dinosaur / human to move and in which direction - in English or course.

The idea of the game is for the dinosaurs to land on the square occupied by a human and thus eat the human, and for the humans to run away from the dinosaurs and survive. You can also use different teams for example robbers who run away from cops or worms that run away from birds etc. etc.
