  1. Brain Busters Got it on the brain?

  2. Instructions • Split the class into even groups of 4 or less. Each team will compete against the other teams in the class. Print the gameboard and place it somewhere where it is visible for the students (middle of the circle, tacked to the board, etc.). Find a game piece for each team (chekkers, pieces of paper, coins, etc.). The teacher should also give each group the table with the categories and number values so they can keep track of what has been used. • The game is split into 4 categories: Lights, Camera, Action (Charades) in which you act out the bold words, Sketch It (Pictionary), Word Play, and Figure It Out (Trivia). • The first team picks a category along with a number value. Click on the chosen value to link to the question. One member of the team will act out or draw while their group tries to guess the answer. You must take turns acting and drawing. The team as a whole tries to determine the answer in Word Play and Figure It Out. • The number value correlates with the number of spaces the team gets to move if they get the question right. If they get the question wrong they don’t get to move. The questions get harder as the value increases. • After the question pops up, the timer starts. Each category has its own time limit. Lights, Camera, Action (45 seconds); Sketch It (45 seconds); Word Play (1 minute); and Figure It Out (30 seconds). After their time expires a slide will pop up declaring their time has run out. DON’T GET ANSY AND CLICK! It will pop up on its own. • If the team answers the question before their time runs out for Lights, Camera, Action and Sketch It, click on the mailbox to get back to the category page. In Word Play and Figure It Out the answer is provided on a different slide. If the students answer the question before time runs out, click on the balloon to link to the answer. If the hand or stoplight pops up, the students must give an answer. After they answer click anywhere on the screen to link to the answer slide. • The first team to get to the finish line wins.
