How to play
Divide the class into 2 teams and have the teams form two lines at the whiteboard. The two students at the front of each line will compete. When a question pops up on the screen, the first student to say the correct answer wins the point. The teacher or game leader will determine if the answer is correct and which student has won the point. That student will click on the 'Award Point' button and then both students will go to the end of the line. Now, the two students at the front of the line will compete to answer the next question. Play continues until the timer runs out. The team with the most points when time runs out wins.
Rules for Students
You can make up any rules that you deem appropriate. Here are a few suggestions:
- If a student from the line shouts out the answer or tries to help when it is not his/her turn, you can have a rule that the point automatically goes to the other team. The two students at the front of the line should then stay for one more question so they get a chance to play.
- You may want to make a rule that there is no talking while waiting in line. A consequence could be that the students who are talking have to go to the end of the line.
