You AND your kids are going to love choosing which "contestants" team they are on. When you get the correct answer, check it on the screen, then click YOUR team's contestant to be awarded the points! Go to the scoreboard to see all the contestants and their scores! Just like the REAL game. To get the most out of this game READ THE INSTRUCTIONS first that are included in the Word document!!
To use this game show, you MUST enable macros on your computer. This lesson includes a PPT document with all the instructions on how to enable macros. I included screen shots. You do NOT have to be a techie to do this! It's super simple! Just follow the pictures! The lesson also includes the gameboard powerpoint. Once you have followed the instructions in the Word Document, your powerpoint will pop right up in SHOW mode.
Having problems? Don't fret! And certainly don't give feedback yet! Let's get this game going! Just drop me an email at iTeachTinyToes@gmail.com so I can get it working for you. Then, of COURSE you'll want to leave some love so you'll get credits for future TpT purchases! Also, let me know which contestants you'd like to see on the show!
If you have a smartboard or any other type of interactive whiteboard, you can also use the projection from those and just use the interactive portion without having to convert the file to whatever it is you use! If you're able to "play" a regular powerpoint, you should be able to play this one too!
