In this brain-tickling adventure, players strive to properly match prefixes with roots. They try to dodge pitfalls while making bold moves to shepherd their four pawns safely home. At the same time, players try to outwit opponents by setting up roadblocks and capturing pawns. Every move affects strategy. This is an exciting road to forming more than 200 words with the 12 most commonly-used prefixes and 68 roots. Intensive, playful practice!
Intended Use: Develop literacy and expand vocabulary
Key Objective: (State, National & Common Core Standards) Expand vocabulary as words are built using pre-
fixes and roots.
• Playful practice in creating new words by adding prefixes to root words
• The more words players know, the more options they have – strong motivation to get out the dictionary! • Fits easily into existing curriculum
• Great for learning teams or in a learning center
• Supports state and national English language arts standards
The object of Pursuit is to add prefixes to base words in order to move pawns clockwise around the board and up the color-matched path. The first player to move all pawns to the center is the winner.
