How to Play
BalloonPop™ is a fun way to review skills using a device. The games are compatible with computers, tablets, laptops, and even phones. The PowerPoint™ games only work on a device with a mouse or trackpad, but the Google Slides™ games work on any device in Google Slides™.
Students answer multiple choice questions and pop a balloon when they answer correctly. The game can be single player, multiplayer, or even used by teams!
How do the games work?
BalloonPop™ is self-correcting and self-paced. As students play, they are returned to the question to try again after an incorrect answer. After a correct answer, students can select a balloon and “pop” it to earn points in PowerPoint™. In Google Slides™, they are rewarded with a gif of a popping balloon.
The PowerPoint™ questions were also used to make the Google Slides™ games. The questions were divided into two 15 question games so students could complete a game during center time, morning work, early finisher activity, or even for homework. The games can be used both in the classroom and at home for distance learning.
With two game sets included (each set includes 1 PowerPoint™ and 2 Google Slides™), teachers have a lot of options and flexibility for using the games with their students.
Which Devices are Compatible with BalloonPop™?
BalloonPop™ is compatible with PCs and Macs, as well as tablets and smartphones.
However, the PowerPoint™ animated games must be played in PowerPoint™ with either a mouse or trackpad. It does work with the free PowerPoint™ app.
The Google™ Slides games can be played on PCs, Macs, Chromebooks, tablets, iPads™, or smartphones in Google slides.
