Team games are a great way to motivate younger students, as well as reinforcing their knowledge of English. Ideally, games should test all learning skills; reading, writing, speaking and listening, not to mention focusing on pronunciation and grammar.
Here’s a familiar game which can be used in the classroom together with an online dice. Put the students into small teams, and give them mini boards and markers.
First, some questions for level 2

dance / drink / eat / take / hold / listen
some or any ?
Is there ____ milk ?
There are ________ eggs.
