This review game is my students’ favorite activity. It allows students to work together to review academic concepts while allowing me, their teacher, to gauge student understanding and address any misconceptions.
REASONS WHY THIS GAME IS AWESOME
1. All subjects, all ages
This game can be used for all subject areas and students of all ages.
2. Equal playing field for the students
While getting every answer correct will give you more opportunities to Crumble Shoot, the lack of aerodynamics of a crumbled sheet of paper prevents any team from racking up too many points. Same goes for athleticism, being more athletically inclined does not give you an advantage in this game.
3. Opportunity to informally assess students’ understanding
Running the game does not require a lot from you, the teacher. Therefore you can walk around and observe as students work on the problems. You can aide individuals or small groups to address misconceptions without having to stop the class.
4. Students love the game!
My students always beg me to play more Crumble Shoot. There is also no need for reward incentives. I have always played this game without any incentives for the team with the most points and students don’t complain! To the students, throwing the crumble is the incentive.
