Prepositions AT IN ON – place

Prepositions of place AT IN ON

A week ago I published a post on prepositions AT, IN, ON for time. Several students asked me if I could do something like that for prepositions AT, IN, ON but for places. So here you are. There is a mind map graphically explaining the usage of the prepositions and then there are 3 games to practise the grammar point. Enjoy.

Prepositions AT, IN, ON for places – MIND MAP

Here is a mind map, where I try to explain the difference between the three prepositions. I tried to make it as illustrative as possible, so I hope everything is clear.

[/sociallocker] Here you can try three games to practise the grammar point. The first game is called penalty and your task is to choose the correct preposition and then score a goal.

The second game is called teacher invaders. Your task is to shoot the invaders and every few seconds complete the sentence with the correct preposition.
