This respurce is a tool students can use to make an interactive sentence game. The game involves sentences that have one or more words missing and a number of possible 'answer' words. The player must select the correct answer words to complete the sentences by either dragging and dropping or ‘shooting' the words in the correct order. Included are five files for students and teachers to download, an eight-part information screen, and 12 examples of matching games already created for Japanese, Indonesian, Italian, French, German and ESL.
