Three possible answers are provided, although the teacher can opt to let the students make a guess prior to moving forward from the clues. This can also be made into a team game, where the team with the most correct guesses wins.
At the beginning, the game reminds players about two of the rules of word lengthening – either doubling the last letter, or changing “y” to “ie”. It then gives the option to testing for either one, after which the game begins. Students are asked to fish for the root word by using the rod that represents the correct lengthened word. If they’re able to choose correctly, the root word is “fished” successfully; otherwise, it swims away.
