order. The first group who calls out “Finish or O Canada”

when the words are in correct order-“WINS!”

Extension Activity #2: Give the groups only 5 minutes. Have all the word cards of

each group on a table. Only one person from each group

is allowed to come to the table to choose the correct

word cards (5 words at a time). The group members help

each other find the correct words. Words cards that

are not needed are returned to the table.

The first group who calls out “Finish or O Canada” when

the words are in correct order-“WINS!”

Play a couple times.

Extension Activity #3: For more of a challenge- The game is played as above

but not all the words card are placed on the table.

The facilitator will tell each group that more than one

word is missing from each phrase.
