This is a PowerPoint review game I created to review Symbolism.
Students act like CSI investigators and go through various categories identifying symbols in different ways from videos, to songs, to pictures, to text.
There are 7 different categories for students to choose from:
(Our agents were able to capture a few perps on video, help us decipher the videos)
(We taped the wires of some suspects and got some interesting song recordings, please decipher them!)
(One of the criminals left behind a note we were not able to decipher, help us unscramble these symbols)
(We were able to collect a few fiber colors from the scene of the crime, help us figure out what they mean)
(We have assembled a line up of suspects; help us rule out innocent people!)
(We have some crime scene photos we need you to analyze!)
(We collected these objects from the scene of the crime. Please analyze them for us to determine their meaning)
(Here are the statements we collected from the witnesses. We need you to analyze their content for hidden symbols)
I created a two page handout to go along with the review game to make sure that all students (or teams) are actively engaged and not just sitting and staring!
Take a look at the demo for a brief look at the categories!
*****There are two embedded videos and two embedded songs within the Powerpoint which means you will need to make sure that you have Powerpoint pptx. to view those 4 slides.
