The Peeramid Game is a fun twist on the Pyramid Game of the 70's, with a focus on building peer-to-peer relationships, asking questions, making friends, and having conversations. Social interactions at school can often be wrought with anxiety, fear, and discomfort. The Peeramid Game encourages students to talk to a variety of their peers in comfortable and fun way!

How is Peeramid played?

This game lasts all year, and a new game is started very week. On Monday, students are shown a set of 5 questions. They answer the questions privately and turn them in. The questions are posted in the classroom. The goal each week is to talk to as many peers as possible and ask them the weekly questions. There are specific whiteboard prompts included to encourage these conversations, but students will be motivated to interact with peers even outside of Peeramid time.

On Friday, a Featured Peer is selected, and the weekly questions are revisited. The class uses whiteboards to guess each answer, and students earn points for each correct guess. The student who has invested the most time getting to know their peers that week will most likely be the winner!

Check out more information in the preview!

Why should we play Peeramid in our classroom?

This game is a great way to forge new friendships, encourage conversations between peer groups that might not typically interact, and a way to have fun while getting to know each other better. The result is a stronger classroom community, increased student confidence, and improved language skills!

What is included when I buy this?

There are 40 weeks of unique questions; the formats can be used on the whiteboard and/or printed out. There is also a form for students to write their answers, as well as 30+ whiteboard prompts to use during "Peeramid time" during the week.


I've also included directions for playing, setting it up so you prep the entire year one time, and lots more in the Read First file.
