I have been on a mission to create a FUN and ENGAGING way to have my students review for the upcoming GA Milestone test and I believe I have found the answer...MASTER MIND!!!!
I wanted my class to have a quick and easy center/partner game/ game to do with their family that would keep the 3rd Grade Georgia Performance Standards for Social Studies fresh in their brains! In Master Mind, students have to explain key concepts/terms from the standards taught throughout the year. When having students accurately explain a term/concept in the game, we can ensure they have a deep understanding of the content.
Directions to the game:
1. Take the Master Mind cards and place them in a pile face down.
2. Take turns picking up a card and holding it up to your forehead without looking at the word(s) on your card.
3. Your partner will have to give you clues describing your card. They can not say any word on the card. They must give examples and details about the term/concept to you.
4. You will then have to guess the card that is on your forehead!
5. Once you correctly guess your card, place the card in a discard pile. It is now the other partners turn.
If you are playing with more than 2 people:
You can play with 2, 4, or 6 people! Each person will have a partner. Each group will take turns selecting a card. Only their partner can give clues about the card. Once the card has been correctly guessed, the next group will take a turn and so on. Once all the groups have gone, the roles of the partners will switch for the next round.
