The Flying Frogs template has a total of forty-one slides. Slide one is the introductory slide. Replace the word “topic” with the title of your game.
The game instructions are on slide two.
Slide three is the “Game Board” slide. It has forty animated frogs that fly off the board when clicked. There are crowns that appear in place of the frogs. When the crowns are clicked, they either take you to a question or reveal a frog prince. When the frog princes are clicked, they take you to the “Royal Reward Spinner”. There are also links to the instructions and to the pond party on the game board. Do not edit or move anything on this slide. If you do the game will not function properly.
Slides four through eleven are the eight “When Frogs Fly” or correct-incorrect statements. Paste or type in your statements next to the “a” and “b”. The correct answer must be pasted or typed next to the letter “c” for correct. Make sure to delete the additional letter “c” after inputting your answer.
Slides twelve through nineteen are the eight “Possible Ponds” or multiple-choice questions. Input your question over the “/” symbol. There are three answer options, “a”, “b”, and “c”. Two of them are the incorrect answers. The correct answer must be input next to the “c” as above.
Slides twenty through twenty-seven are the eight “Missing Toads” or fill-in-the-blank sentences. They also have three options for the missing word or phrase in the statement, two incorrect answers, and one correct answer. Fill them in as above.
Slides twenty-eight through thirty-five are the eight “Leaping Lilies” or describe the photo slides. Insert a photo and two options to describe it. Again, make sure the correct answer goes where the “c” is and delete the “c”.
Slide thirty-six is the “Fly Traps” slide. All correct answers are linked to this slide. The filled boxes cover rewards. Slide thirty-seven is the “Boiling Pots” slide. All incorrect answers are linked to this slide. The filled boxes cover penalties.
Slide thirty-eight is the “Spin for a Royal Reward” slide. Players are directed here when they click on a frog prince. This is linked to slide thirty-nine where the filled boxes cover the player’s reward.
Slide forty is the “Pond Party”. The winning player/team clicks on the link on the game board to celebrate their victory here.
In a nutshell, all you have to do is paste in your title on the first slide then paste in your questions and answers on the appropriate slides. Leave the other slides alone and all should function perfectly well.
Most importantly, remember to have fun!

How to Play:
If you play with teams, choose them randomly by whatever method you wish. Each team must select a team captain that will choose a team number, question numbers, question answers, and other selections for the group. With each turn the captain can be rotated to keep all players involved. You can also play with eight singles/groups or give more than one character to a player or group. Just do whatever suits your class’s needs best.
Players must choose a number to represent them. All numbers have one score board for keeping track of flies won and one for boiling pots received. The first player/team will click on a flying frog. This The frog will fly off the screen and reveal a crown in its place. Players must click on the crown. The crown will disappear and one of two things will happen. They will either be linked to one of the four question types, “When Frogs Fly” or correct-incorrect, “Possible Ponds” or multiple choice, “Missing Toads” or fill in the blank, or “Leaping Lilies” or describe the photo or the disappearing crown will reveal an Easter egg frog prince.
When players are on a question slide, they must choose the option they think is correct and click it. Players must remember the question coordinate, for example, 1A so that when they are directed to the “Fly Traps”-correct answer slide, or the “Boiling Pots”-incorrect answer slide, they know what covered box coordinate to click on for their reward or penalty. After receiving the reward or penalty, players need to hover over the square again until a hand appears. They need to click again to recover the reward or penalty. They then need to click on the “Back to Board” button and either add the flies or boiling pots to the appropriate scoreboard. After players add their flies or boiling pots, play passes to the next player/team.
If players clicked on a crown and it revealed an Easter egg frog prince, they need to click on the frog prince. This will direct them to the “Royal Reward Spinner”. Once there, players will click on the spinner to activate it and click again to make it stop. Players will remember the coordinate the spinner landed on and click on the “To Royal Rewards” button. This directs them to the actual “Royal Rewards” slide. The player must click on the coordinate the spinner landed on to receive their reward. After receiving the reward, players need to hover over the square again until a hand appears. They need to click again to recover the reward or penalty. The player must finally click on the “Back to Board” button and either add or subtract the flies or boiling pots they received or take another turn by clicking on another frog.
Players will take turns clicking frogs on the board as above.
There are a couple of ways determine a winner. One is when all of the questions have been answered, the players must deduct the amount of boiling pots from their flies total. The player/team with the most flies wins. The second option is to set a time limit for the game. The player/team with the most flies when time is up, wins. Regardless of the method, the winning player/team gets to click on the “Pond Party” button on the game board to celebrate!
