This quick-paced, nail-biter of a 1st grade math and language arts game will leave your kids BEGGING for more! Team up to knock out the other team's player. The last team standing wins! This is by far the most engaging thing I've done for my classroom. My kids get SO excited when we play, and they work super hard all week practicing their math and reading skills just so they can improve their Knockout™ game!
Not only is this GREAT for learning about and reinforcing 1st grade math and reading skills, but it builds character as it emphasizes teamwork and good sportsmanship.
A quick look at Knockout™ & how it is played:
•Divide your class into 2 single file lines
•Display the first slide
•The player at the front of his/her line faces off against the player from the other team: the first player to answer his/her question correctly wins and returns to the end of the line.
•The player who does not win goes to sit on the team "bench" to cheer on the team!
BUT WAIT. That's not all.
If a player faces these slides, the following could happen:
•Double Free Pass: Both players automatically get to stay in the game!
•Double Knockout™: Both players are automatically out!
•Knockout™/Free Pass: One player goes, one stays!
•Pick a Pal: Choose a player from the bench to return to the game!
•Knockout™/Pick a Pal: One player goes, the other chooses a friend to return!
The team with players standing at the end of the game wins. In our classroom, we like to keep teams the same for a week or two and keep a running score as a Knockout™ "tournament." Check out these free Knockout scoreboards HERE
This is a set of PowerPoint files and can be used on any device that supports PowerPoint. Each game is a PowerPoint presentation that has 30 slides. Some of the games are also available as a PDF; please read the "Directions" file that comes with this product to view directions for PDF or PowerPoint set-up.
