ang0804 re: End of the year Survivor game- week long unit
Hi! Can you email me the directions to the challenge activities? I also had the same questions as Susan. I am hoping you will respond to her soon so we can get started. Thanks! agipe@washoeschools.net
May 20, 2013
Below is the way that we do the challenges, feel free to modify as desired. I will also email you the Word doc. Thank you and good luck!

Multiplication Relay:
Create a sheet of 15-20 multiplication problems on it that your students should know. Have each tribe sit in a row, one behind another. The first person solves the problem and then passes it to the person behind them. That person checks the first problem- if it is right they do a problem of their own, if it is wrong, they pass the paper back up to the first person to have it corrected. This continues. Each person in line is responsible for checking the previously done problems. If one is found to be incorrect, the paper is passed up the line to be fixed. If everything is correct they do a problem and continue to pass it back. The first team to correctly complete their page and return it to the front of their line will be the winner.

Water Balloon Toss:
Students partner up with someone in their tribe. All start facing one another. If they catch the water balloon they take one step backward. If they do not catch it they are out. Final partnership standing is the winning tribe. If uneven number of students in tribe, they can stand in a threesome circle and take steps backwards that way tossing it to each team member.

Egg Relay:
We use raw eggs and a plastic spoon and do this activity in the grass. Determine start and end mark. Have two tribes line up one behind the other. Student holds plastic spoon with egg on it and walks/jogs to the finish line and then walks/jogs back and hands it off to the next person in line. The tribe that finishes first is the winner. Winning tribes pair up against one another to determine a class winner.

Airplane Contest:
We usually do this in the hallway. Start at one place and then put tape down where the plane lands. Farthest flying plane wins.

Sponge Relay:
Students line up with their tribe. Place a bucket or pitcher at the start and finish line. The bucket/pitcher at the start line has water in it. Give the person at the front of the line a sponge. They dip the sponge and then run it to the bucket/pitcher at the finish line and squeeze the water in. Pass to the next player and repeat until finish line bucket/pitcher is full. Have extra water on hand to refill start line buckets!

Susan Silva  (TpT Seller) re: End of the year Survivor game- week long unit
Hi I was hoping you could help with with your survivor game. I'm not sure if I missed something, but I have a few questions about how the game works. Is it one activity a day? When and how do the challenge activities fit in? How are the awards decided? Your directions say allow groups to work for 4-5 hours each day, but I don't think that one activity will last anywhere near that long. I'm sorry that I'm so confused. I'm sure I probably missed something. Nevertheless, if you have a moment I would appreciate some help. Thank you.
May 14, 2013
Hi Susan,
I appologize in not answering your question sooner....it did not pop up in my email as a question and I did not know I had one waiting. Tribes work at their own pace, so for example we started today and I have some groups that have completed 1 activity and some that are done with 2. As soon as they are done with an activity, I move them to the next activity. I have the challenges scheduled throughout the week and on the "Bonus Activities" sheet I announce at the beginning of the week when each challenge is. I decide the awards based on what team is working together best and getting along for "Best Sportsmanship," "Survivor Team Winner" is for most activities completed/torches lit, "1st Runner Up" is the team with the 2nd most torches lit/activities completed, "Best Flag" is based on neatness, attractiveness, and good, correct facts, "Best Problem Solving" is teams that do not use help tickets for directions and work together to solve their tribes problems, and finally "Most Challenges Won" is for those extra bonus activity winners. I hope that this information helps and if you have any other questions, please let me know. Again, I appolozie for not getting back to you sooner. :)

cccanzo re: Common and Proper noun sorting and matching activities
Jen, I downloaded the preview and it brought up the whole document. When I clicked on the "print" icon, it would have allowed me to print the document. I didn't do it since I hadn't purchased the product. Just wanted to let you know in case this was not your intent for the preview. Good luck!
September 25, 2012
Thank you so much for letting me know. That was not my intent....I will get that updated. :) I hope you find the product useful.

Hi!

I just purchased your end of the year survivor game, and when I downloaded it, it came up all weird. The pages were blurry. I can do digital downloads so I'm not sure what it is. Any suggestions?
Thanks,
Julie

Hi Julie,
Were you using a Mac? I had 2 other people have the same problem when they downloaded it on a Mac, but when they downloaded it on a PC, it worked fine. If you were not using a Mac, let me know and we can figure out another solution.
Thanks,
Jen

joanward re: End of the year Survivor game- week long unit
I love this idea for the end of the year. Did you know that your preview is the same as the purchase?
My question - Can you email me the directions for the challenges? ms.ward@comcast.net
Thank-you, I can't wait to start.
May 28, 2012
Thanks, I did not realize the preview was the same! I will email you challenge directions soon! Thanks.

Hi Jen,

Thanks for your quick response. I am using a mac and after I first contacted you, I tried again and this time used Adobe reader instead of the program the computer was set to default (Preview). It opened fine in Adobe! I can't wait to use the unit! Thanks again for getting back to me!

Hi! I was really excited to download the Survivor end of the year unit, but was very disappointed when I tried to open it and all the font was blurry. Do you have any ideas on how I can make it readable so I can print it and use it?

Thanks,
Laura Barron

Hello! Are you using a mac? Another user emailed me with a similar situation and was using a mac so that is why there was an issue- when she opened it on a PC, the situation was resolved. If you are using a PC, I can try emailing you the file? Are you opening it as a PDF? Thanks, and we will try to get it to work for you!

Hi Jen,

That would be great! I have a school mac and I can't download the latest Adobe reader so that could be the problem. My e-mail is jlange@lakeshoreps.org. I really appreciate it!

Thanks again,
Jamie

Hi Jamie,
I just emailed it to you. Please let me know if it works. Thanks so much! Enjoy!

jlange1 re: End of the year Survivor game- week long unit
Hi Jen,

I just purchased and downloaded the survivor unit, however, I can't read it. Every page is just a bunch of shapes instead of words. The only thing I can read is the survivor heading. Did I do something wrong? I have purchased several things before from this site and never had this problem.

Please let me know what I can do. Is it possible to get a refund if it doesn't work?
Thanks,
Jamie
April 26, 2012
Hi Jamie,
That is very strange. I have it in PDF format, so not sure what is going on. I would be happy to email it to you if you would like to provide me with your email. Would that work out for you?
Thank you,
Jen
