Make learning fun and assess your students' reading comprehension of Fahrenheit 451 with this activity that uses cooperative learning. Throughout this Power Point game, teams of students recall characters, plot, and literary devices (imagery, symbolism, simile, allusion, and onomatopoeia) in order to compete to shoot baskets into a trash can. There are 25 short-answer questions in total.
Research shows that students often learn best when they can move, and this activity motivates students further by tapping into their love of sports. Using heterogeneous groups to play a game with friendly competition is an excellent way to meet the needs of all of your students and reward them for their success. Students are sure to remember their reading of Fahrenheit 451 with this engaging activity.
The Power Point includes slides with the rules, instructions for the teacher, and a key.
Game questions may be edited to fit the needs of your students.
