BE A CHAMPION (FOOTBALL)

How to setup:

This game takes no time to prepare! Just gather questions you want to review with the kids, a worksheet they worked on or questions in your head and go.

How to play the game:

Divide your class into two groups and designate each team a name. Whoever gets the questions right, click on that team’s white bar below their name and it will go to their “booster slide”. If the question isn’t answered correctly, click on wrong for a boo and an animation. Click on “Next Play” to go back to the score board. When the scoreboard comes back up, the three points will be listed. Practice this once before class just so you know how the scores work and where to click.

CONCENTRATION

How to setup:

Under the outline tab to the left, you will find a phrase written on “Slide 2.” Highlight the text the slide in the outline and replace it with a phrase from your content area. If you press enter, it updates the slide. Hold Shift and Enter to put a return in your phrase. Make sure to preview the game yourself to know what it looks like. So that the students do not see the answers shown on the “Outline” tab, make sure to click on the “Slides” tab before you show your screen to your students. There are 10 boards in this file.

How the game works:

Students answer a question given by the teacher to win try. Once they answer correctly, can pick a square to be removed. Teacher clicks on the square; it disappears allowing part of the solution to be seen. They can guess what it says, only on their turn. To get to the next puzzle, click the next puzzle link at the bottom of the screen.

HOLLYWOOD SQUARES

How to setup:

You can play Hollywood Squares however it works best for your class. When you enter your questions you can decide how you want it setup.

Real Hollywood Squares: Enter only one answer. The questions are then more or less true or false. The students or teams then decide if they agree or disagree. If they are correct they get the square. If they are wrong, their opponent gets the square.

Hollywood Squares: board game version: When writing the choices, use all the answers. One team will read the question and choose an answer. They can bluff with a wrong answer or use a correct answer. The other team then has to agree or disagree. If they are correct, they get the square; if not, the other team gets the square.

No bluff version: Play as a multiple choice game. Let the team pick the correct choice from three multiple choice answers, or don’t put answers up at all and let them give you the answer. Correct answer gets the square. Incorrect answer gives the square to the other team.

The easiest way to edit questions is to open the “Outline” view. At the bottom left hand corner of the screen choose the “Normal” view which gives you a three section window, then choose the “Outline” option for the panel on the left. You can then double click on Question and Choice 1, then just type your information in there.

How to play the game:

Have the students pick a star from “Slide 2”. Click on the star’s picture. Go to the page and do the question. At the top click on the left box if the X teams wins the square, the right box if the O team wins the square. This will bring you to the letter page. Just click on the letter. Then, go back and click on the left or right box of that star to show who won the box.

If you click on the icon for one of these three it will take you to a new slide. For “Phone a friend” the student can ask one person to help them. With “Poll the audience”, the class gets to vote on the answer. For 50/50 the teacher eliminates two of the incorrect answers. Click on the U shaped arrow and it will return you to the question.

If you print out the lifelines and letters, you can give each team the letters and lifelines. As teams use their lifelines, have them give them to you so you know who has used which ones. All of the teams can answer each question by having them pull out the answer then everyone showing the answer at once.

$1,000,000 Pyramid

How to setup the game:

Click on the triangular boxes and drag them off of the game board. To edit the game board, click on the words in the blue boxes. This should put white dots around the word. Click on the word again and it should get grey dots around it. Now double click on the word. You can now edit your words. When you have changed all of the words, highlight all 6 boxes with triangles in the grey work space then drag them over to cover the boxes.

How to play the game:

This should be played with one person looking at the screen and another facing away from the screen. Click on the triangle in the lower left hand corner of the pyramid. It should disappear. Your term should now appear. The student looking at the screen now needs to get the other player to say the word, without saying the word (much like taboo). If they get it, click on the word again and a dollar amount will appear. If they pass, you can click on another triangle to get another word to try. Once they have worked all the way to the top, they can go back and work on what they passed. They can see the ones on which they passed on the screen throughout the game.

Ideas:

You could have one person looking away from a projected screen and the rest of the class looking and trying to help. You could also push the ppt out with a program to students in pairs at laptops and have the whole room working in pairs.

I Spy - Road Letters

This is the classic road game made a little higher powered.

Teachers – consider using this in your classroom for naming objects that start with this letter in your classroom!

How to play the game:

Mission: Find the letters of the alphabet in order from A to Z in the area that surrounds your car.

Make sure you are paying attention – letters are everywhere:

License plates, billboards, road signs, sky banners, roof tops, vehicle decals.

Rules: When you get stuck looking for a letter for over 1 minute, start again at A – but now be looking for that letter and A, and move on looking for 2 letters at the same time. It is typical to get stuck on letters: J, V, Q and Z.

Skipping. Letters must be located OUTSIDE of the vehicle. You may use up to 4 letters per sign.

Ideas:

Playing as a Group:

If playing with a group, call out the letter you spotted and the word you found it in.

One-on-One or Team Competition:

Designate one player or team to cars on the left side and the other to cars on the right. For fairness it is essential to have an outside keeper of the scoreboard.

TAKS Pursuit

How to setup: This game is completely independent of questions and preparation. Simply gather questions in 6 different categories and list those categories in the text box.

How to play the game: Initially all players will start in the center. To put a player in a new place, find their number in the new space and click. To remove a player from the previous space, click the number on that space and they will disappear. A role of 6 initially will put a player at the crossroads. Those are the only spaces where a team can earn a wedge. Whatever color students land on determines the category of question they are to answer. When the team answers the question correct they can roll again. Click on the appropriate wedge to make it appear in the space. You CANNOT make the wedges disappear! If a player lands directly in the center, they can pick any question of their choice.
