Product Description
Divide your class into teams of 3-4. Each team should have a whiteboard, marker, and eraser. Students will compete to earn plastic cups (the cheapest ones work best - I usually use the 8 oz size.) At the end of Round 1 (FIVE QUESTIONS), students will build a tower using the cups they have earned. The goal is to have the tallest tower at the end of the game. Have all of the groups build their tower in a central location, like on a bookshelf. All of these towers will become “targets” for teams that earn/throw marshmallows in round 2. After asking 5 questions AND after the students have built their cup towers, you will move on to the round with the marshmallows.
I have included questions that can be used in multiple games.
