An exciting PowerPoint game based on Dance Dance Revolution! Music plays as arrows show students which types of angles to put their feet (or fingers!) on.
- Masking tape (to make lines on the floor or desk)
1. Tape out two parallel lines and a transversal for each student, either on the floor or, if space is limited, on the desks.
2. Hook up computer, projector, and speakers so that all students can see and hear.
3. Begin slideshow. The first few slides review the four types of angle relationships included: alternate interior, corresponding, alternate exterior, and vertical.
4. Dance! There are three different songs, each about 3 minutes long. As the music plays, arrows will float to the top of the screen. As the arrow passes over the angle name students put their feet (or fingers for desk game) on that angle pair. When each song finishes, you can click "Next Song" at the bottom of the slide to move to the next song.
If you have an idea to modify this for other subjects or uses, please let me know! I'll happily change the titles and review slides to fit your needs!
