Keyboarding- Typing Games- The 50 States Challenge
This is a fun activity to do with students in a keyboarding/typing class to help students build their typing speed.
Each student will receive a copy of the list of states. Students will be given a designated amount of time in which they must type as many states as they can. They should enter after each one. Students should type in Calibri, 10 font size. Tell them to get rid of the default 1.15 line spacing. The goal of this activity is for students to keep their eyes off the screen and hands while typing the states. This is an exercise geared toward speed. The winner could be whoever finishes first with all words spelled correctly/no typos or set a time limit and whoever types the most words correctly wins. Can have more than one winner. Can also reward all students who can get half the list or the entire list completed correctly in a designated amount of time. Can also have students type with their monitor off/covered, keyboard cover on, etc. If choose to select numerous winners, can put names in a hat/papers in a hat and choose one or a few.
Included in this download will be the states list and the directions sheet.
