Grammar Complement Challenge

Grammar Complement Challenge


To reinforce the students' understanding of complements in sentences.


  • Whiteboard or blackboard
  • Markers or chalk
  • Paper and pencils for students
  • Timer


Example sentences:

  1. The artist painted ____.
  2. The teacher gave ____ a gold star.
  3. The crowd named ____ the winner.
  4. The chef cooked ____ for dinner.
  5. The team considers ____ their mascot.
  6. The company appointed ____ CEO.
  • Choose a sentence and randomly select a team to go first.
  • The team must correctly identify the missing complement and write it on their paper within a set time limit (e.g., 30 seconds).
  • If the team is correct, they receive a point. If they are incorrect or do not finish in time, the other team has a chance to steal the point by correctly providing the missing complement.
  • Continue playing, alternating teams and sentences until all sentences have been completed.
  • The team with the most points at the end of the game wins.


  • To make the game more challenging, you can include sentences with more than one missing complement or with more complex sentence structures.
  • You can also ask students to identify the type of complement (direct object, indirect object, or objective complement) for additional points.
  • For a more collaborative game, you can have students work in pairs or small groups to come up with the missing complement and discuss their answers before presenting them to the class.
