Directions to play the game
1) Break the class up into teams or have the students play individually.
2.) Have a team or an individual student choose an animal from the board.
3.) Click directly on an animal. It is hyperlinked to a question. Have the students answer the question on an individual white board or paper. Then click anywhere on the screen ( except the "back to the zoo" button) to reveal the answer and the point value for that question.
4.) Each group or individual students who answered the question correctly will be awarded the points for that question.
5.) Click the “Back to the Zoo” button to go back to the animals and select a new animal.
6.) The winning team is the team with the most points. If individual students are playing, I usually take a poll of the room and take the top 5 scorers as the winners for the game.
