Product Description
This is an exciting game I use in my Geometry classes after the first few weeks of instruction, when they have had exposure to terms such as linear pair, vertical angles, angle addition postulate, segment addition postulate, the reflexive property of congruence, alternate interior angles, corresponding angles, and so forth.

Students get really excited to finish the relay race faster and faster each time, and they also get competitive about beating my other sections' record times. Even though the first attempt goes in fits and starts (because some students really struggle with naming basic vocabulary), they see vast improvements in their overall times.

It's a great way to open class: First, you’ll need to print off one sheet per student. Ask the students to stand in a circle (or at least a close enough approximation of a circle so that everybody can see everybody else at any given time). The teacher should also be part of the circle so that you, too, can see all of them at any given time. Having students stand helps them to remain more alert and mentally engaged, and it also makes it difficult for them to look at notes, phones, etc.

They will eventually end up with times to do the entire sheet under 5 minutes after playing for a few weeks.

It is very exciting for students to see their progress over time.

The preview file is a pdf so you may see what you're getting; the product file is a word document, which you may edit for your students.
