The Story of “Government Baseball”

You are in the World Series and the series is tied 3-3. To help your team win Game 7, you must answer Government questions to get hits and score enough runs to beat the opposition. “Government Baseball” is a great way to review for a test, bringing two of America’s great past times together. Instead of giving the winning team extra credit points, they can feel the joy of knowing your team won. Good luck!

Game Directions

The goal of the game is to answer Government trivia questions to get hits and score runs. To play the game you have to answer questions at particular levels of difficulty to get different types of hits to score runs for your team. If you don’t want to attempt a trivia question, you can click on a chance card and see what happens during your at bat. To keep up with who is on base, students can either set up a baseball diamond in the classroom where each student can move forward from base to base, or the teacher can keep track of the field on a chalkboard. In addition, teams can hit back-to-back homeruns by answering baseball trivia questions. To win the game you have to score more runs than the other team.
