This Knockout game is a great study tool for students learning about common and proper nouns.
-Students need to divide into two teams and line up in two separate lines in front of the Smart/Promethean Board.
-One student from each team face off and will need to answer whether the noun is common or proper. The quickest person to answer gets to continue and go to the back of the line. The other student will have to take a seat on the bench, they are out.
-Students continue until there is only one person standing.
-Watch for slides that say Knockout! Those students will have to take a seat and cheer on their team from the bench.
-Slides could also have a free pass. This allows students to go to the back of the line without having to answer a question.
-Most importantly have fun!
