This is a game that can be used on an Interactive Whiteboard or through projection and a computer. Students can be placed in teams and will plot points looking for Smiley Faces. As students click on the coordinate, either a smiley face or an explosion will appear. The group who finds the most smiley faces wins.
Please pay attention to the directions on slide two.
This was created using PowerPoint 2007 and animations (triggers). Please be careful not to change any animations.
*UPDATE: I used this with my students for the first time before Winter Break and they absolutely LOVED it. We broke into two teams and took score with +1 for smiley and -1 for bomb. The students called out a possible coordinate saying "over #, Up #" so that they kept repeating and hearing "over, up" which is what 5th graders still confuse. The instant gratification of getting a bomb or smiley was enough to keep enthusiasm going for the entire board to be used.
