Do you need an activity to spice up any quiz or review session, that will keep your students clamering to participate?
This is a competition car racing game that you can use with a computer and projector, or an interactive Whiteboard in your classroom. When you are giving a quiz and you want the make it interesting, divide the class into two teams, 'Blue Cars' and 'Red Cars' Project the game on the screen or board, and tell the students they are going to have a race to the finish. Ask a question (on the work you would like to revise) and the student/team that answers first gets to move their car down the track. The first team to finish the race is the winner.
How it works:
Each team has a car (blue or red). A student who has just answered a question correctly has earned the right to come to the board and move their team's car along the track. This is what they do: They click on the green button (at the bottom of the screen). This starts their speedometer moving, and then the button turns red. They then click the red button to make their speedometer stop. The number the needle is pointing to indicates how many spaces they are allowed to move their car. The student then clicks on their teams car button (next to the green button) the number of times shown by the speedometer. The game continues until one team has reached the finish line.
In the preview, the two cars can only move the first three spaces.
