Sentence auction

How did you pick this theme or topic?
Day of the Oldenborg Dinner, so we only had 45 minutes

How did you present the material? (Handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
I explain the game: 3 teams of 4. They have a list of sentences ( see below). We read one sentence, the students have to guess if it is correct or if there is a mistake. If there’s a mistake according to them , they have to say WHAT the mistake is.
Also, they have to bet (secretly!) a certain amount of…M&Ms after 2 mn, I collect their bet and we correct the sentence.
If two teams have the right answer, the winning one is the one that bet the most M7Ms. ( you have to give a limit other wise they will bet 100000000000000 M&Ms…)
How did students react?
They liked it

Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes! They actually asked a lot of good questions. It enable me to review some grammar points.
