What's needed to play the Kindness Game Show?
✔ It is best used with a Promethean White Board or projector that that can be hooked up to your computer; it's formatted as a power point presentation.
✔ Want to go screen-free? No problem! This Kindness Game Show also comes with printable task cards with the same prompts as the Game Show challenges.
Provides lots of flexibility.... Given that the GAME SHOW takes 40-60 minutes to play, and sometimes we just don't have that much time....or that the GAME SHOW works best projected on a large screen, and sometimes the technology breaks down....or that there are days when we walk into the classroom and just know that a whole classroom game is not going to fly that day....and sometimes students need more quiet, reflective activities......I have included more than 6 additional formats to teach about Kindness that do not require the use of the power point presentation. (Note: the additional activities do involve some printing prep-work.)
