ZAP! is a fun and engaging way to have students practice any kind of skill from forming plurals to identifying fact and opinion statements. With this ZAP! game set you can create your own ZAP! game for any skill that you decide.
Included in this file…
*Programmable game strips (two sizes)
*Programmable Answer Key
*Game container (Pringle’s cans work really well)
*Skill items to be written on the strips
*Printer and paper (cardstock or heavy paper works best) and doesn’t need laminating
To Play ZAP:
*Divide your class into several teams depending on the number of students.
*Determine how long you will play or how many rounds you will complete.
*Have a student draw a strip from the container without looking inside.
*The team should read the words on the strip, then confer to determine the answer.
*If the team answers correctly, it keeps the strip. If it answers incorrectly the strip is returned to the container.
*Teams take turns drawing/collecting the strips. However, there is a twist. If a team draws a ZAP! card, it must return ALL of its strips to the container.
*The winner is the team that collects the most strips. You may want to award them with a simple prize such as a SWEET treat, bonus points on an upcoming quiz/test, 5 minutes of free time, or a BRAG TAG (included in this packet).
