Travel Dominoes

ESL Travel Collocations Game - Reading and Matching Activity - Pre-intermediate (A2) - 20 minutes

In this free travel collocations game, students play dominoes by matching words together to make collocations related to travel. The first player puts down one of their dominoes on either side of the domino on the table, making sure that the words match together to make a travel collocation, e.g. check-in desk. The other players then take it in turns to match their dominoes in the same way by putting them down at either end of the domino chain. The first player to get rid of all their dominoes wins the game. Students can also play the game using a points system. In this version, each time a student makes a travel collocation, they score one point. The student then tries to make a suitable sentence using the collocation for an extra point. The student with the most points at the end of the game wins.
