This is my students' ALL-TIME favorite way to practice for tests! Once you try it, they will ask to play all the time! I added the game portion to what could and has been very boring test reviews. This game gets the competitive juices flowing of even the most disengaged student!
I am providing three power-points to go along with the already created game portion. (Once I got the game board made, I can use it over and over again!) The Power Points are also stand alone and would make great centers or great questions for other games like “trashketball”, baseball, bingo, Around the World, or Hollywood Squares.
