Last year, my team and I split up the review activity responsibilities, and we ended up with three different Jeopardy games. It worked for review purposes, but we were ALL so tired of Jeopardy! This year, I deliberately looked for different games to keep our kids engaged and interested. Since
Love, War, and Lightning - In this game, you type your own questions into a PowerPoint template. When students answer a question correctly, they click a treasure chest to be taken to a random prize. They can either gain or lose points, or be required to trade points with another team. I love the randomness, and the fact that they will have to do some strategic thinking!
Treasure Hunt - This game is PERFECT for math review, because the game board is on PowerPoint, but the questions are done on paper. It works kind of like "Punch a Bunch" from The Price is Right. There are detailed rules at the end of the PowerPoint, but basically, the teacher creates game sheets with 6 math problems on each page, and students work independently at first, then are able to compare their answers with their team. She suggests 10 minutes total per round, allowing them to work together when 4 minutes remain. Correct answers get a "punch" on the board to reveal a prize. Repeat for as many rounds as needed to review all you want!
Flash Jeopardy Game - Ok, so I said no Jeopardy, but this one is actually pretty cool. It's a Flash game instead of the usual PowerPoint style, and it's really easy to input questions and keep score.
I'm off to watch Walking Dead with the hubby, and then finish up these review games tomorrow. Have a good week, everyone!
