Lesson Plan Text

Nationality Words- Stress Maze Games

Nationality words stress maze game 1
Trace a route through the maze below by following only the country words which change 
into nationality words that are stressed on the first syllable, starting from the top-left corner
word “
India” (because the nationality word is “Indian”, which is stressed on the first 
syllable). You can’t jump over squares and you can only move vertically or horizontally 
(meaning up, down, left or right), not diagonally. You should finish somewhere on the 
right-hand side of the maze, with an unbroken line of squares between the start and finish.
