Eats, Shoots & Leaves Punctuation Game

The Eats, Shoots & Leaves punctuation game is based on the popular book of the same name written by Lynne Truss. The game presents a series of sample sentences to which users have to decide whether or not punctuation is need and if so where to add it. The game starts with a section about using the apostrophe.

Applications for Education
The Eats, Shoots & Leaves punctuation provides instant feedback to students as they practice the use of punctuation. If using the game online is not an option for your students, the game is still a valuable source of sample problems that you can use with your students in the classroom.

Update!
The link to this game now appears to be dead.
