--The SLP/teacher/student draws a card from the pile and reads the given fact and corresponding WH question.
--The student who answers correctly earns the amount of points noted on the card.
--For groups, a buzzer format may create some friendly competition! Or you may ask students questions individually.

--The student who makes the most shots is the “NCAA Tournament Winner”!
