Review game to ace my Colonies test! PowerPoint game of Will the Winners lose? (see directions below) and a form for them to fill out as we go. I do not grade these but I tell them I will randomly select 3-4 people at the end of class and if their worksheet is complete they get to choose a candy (EVERYONE does their worksheet along with us). This game works great for my classes, they're competitive without getting mean if someone guesses wrong, or loses points because it's random. Here's how I play:
-Hand out worksheets to students
-Open up PowerPoint and select "Play from Start"
-Break up the class into groups (I automatically have each row be a team or you can do 1/2 the class, etc.)
--I read the question, give EVERYONE about 5-6 seconds to write down what they think the answer is
-Then I draw a Popsicle stick with the student's name (you can randomly choose a student however you want) and that student gets answer the question.
-If they are incorrect, their team can help them but if no one on the team knows then I draw another stick.
-If they (or their row) gets it correct they get to choose one of the random point cards.
If you have any questions PLEASE let me know!
