This download includes two versions of the game, one with picture hints and one with word hints.
This resource allows students to compete to find answers on the map. One mouse click brings up a question, another click reveals the answer, and a third click makes the question go away. There are 50 questions in all.
Landmarks include: Statue of Liberty, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Hollywood, The Alamo, Kennedy Space Station, Smithsonian, White House, Mount Whitney, Rocky Mountains, Mississippi River, Niagara Falls, Death Valley, Grand Canyon, St. Louis Arch, Liberty Bell, Great Salt Lake, and many many more. Enjoy!
Suggestions for playing:
Split the class into two or more even teams & pick a scorekeeper (questions 1-10 are worth 1 point each, 11-20 are worth 2 points each, and 21-30 are worth three points each)
Call up a student from each team to compete simultaneously
They can use unused fly-swatters, yardsticks, or their hands to slap the answer
One mouse click brings up a question, another click reveals the answer, and a third click makes the question go away
The competing students read the question and attempt to slap the location of the answer
The first student to answer correctly gets the point for their team and remains to compete in the next round against new students
If a student goes on a win streak of three, their turn is over
A student who slaps everywhere to assure they get the right answer is disqualified
If a student’s slap is close, it is up to the teacher to decide
The team with the most points by the end of the game wins!
