Game Features

  • Features 12 different robot characters from tv and movies

  • Includes decoding sheet handout

  • "Robot language" is Wingdings font, so sentences are easy to type out,  just type them as you normally would in English or another language

How to Play

  • Students play this game individually.

  • Students will see a message in "robot language" on the screen.

  • They must figure out what the robot is saying and write it in their notebook using their decoding sheet.


  • For the online/Zoom version of this game, the only difference is that the decoding chart is on each slide rather than on a separate sheet of paper that you print for each student. Definitely feel free to use this version for offline classes as well if you want to save some time and materials :)


(based on experiences from me and other teachers)

  • Time: 20min; Students: 24; Skill Focus: Writing; Finished: No (usually only finished up to round 7)

  • Time: 30-35min; Students: 24; Skill Focus: Writing; Finished: Yes (found Wingdings font to be inconsistent across different PCs, so screenshotted the correct texts and pasted them as pictures on the slides to combat this issue)
