This Brain Break Quiz Game is a Power Point that allows students to have fun responding to familiar questions. The game can be played in teams or with students answering individually using response cards. While this game is not specifically meant to be academic, there are some academic benefits. Giving students a short break is a good transition before starting the next task. Collaboration is part of the common core standards, so working together as a team fit the bill. Since the questions are familiar questions, even students who might not do well academically have an opportunity to do well with this activity.
This game is played whole class with the teacher asking the question and then allowing the students to answer with response cards. Providing students with the opportunity to discuss the question and answers whole class after the answer has been given is another way to stimulate conversation.
This set includes instructions for using the game, response cards and the Power Point Quiz. There are 82 slides, with 16 of them being the actual questions.
