To understand how advances in science and technology have changed ways of living, especially in industrialized nations of the world.
1 class period
The class is divided into five teams that compete against each other in a unique game which reviews recent developments in science and technology. Topics include:
• Business and Industry
• The Environment
Each student is given a copy of the first lesson page containing the game form.
When a question is asked by the teacher (from the second and third lesson pages that only the teacher has during the game), the first person to raise their hand will be called on. If their answer is correct, all class members print the name or term along the top row of spaces for that player’s team. For example, if the answer is “astronaut,” spaces 1 through 9 are filled with one letter each for the team giving the right answer.
The team that fills its 54 spaces first wins the game. If no team can do this by the end of the period, then the team with the most spaces filled wins the game.
Complete game rules are provided on the lesson pages.
Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment or used as a review exercise later in the school year.
