Teacher’s Instructions - Match Rules
• Divide the players into 2 teams – e.g. blue and red (or choose team names).
• Each team nominates one person to take the 1st penalty.
The nominated students both stand up.
The teacher asks the blue team question 1 to the blue team player and awards a penalty if the student answers correctly.
The red team penalty taker is then asked the matching red question 1 and awarded a penalty if the answer is correct.
• Another person from each team is then chosen to take the 2nd penalty.
• Play continues for 10 rounds and then the number of goals is added up for each team.
• If there is a draw, play goes to extra time.
Each team chooses their best player to take the final penalty.
Only one question is asked and the 1st player to answer correctly wins the whole match for the team.
• At the end of the match, players in the winning team pick a “man of the match” - the student who they think played the best.
• This game can also be played by groups of students by allowing one student to be the “teacher”.
• It might be fun if the teacher uses their whistle and acts as the referee.
• Teachers may also want to allow a victory dance/celebration on scoring a penalty!
