This is a review game that goes along with the Matter Unit Review. Students complete the review on their own. The day before the test, we play Trashketball with this slideshow, and students check their review.
Here is how our version of Trashketball works. Students are put into 4 groups (3 if small class). The first person on the pink team gets the first question. On each question, the question number matches the question on the review. Students use their review to answer. If they answer correctly, they get to steal a star from another team. If they get the answer wrong, the question goes to the next team.
After getting a question right, the student gets to attempt to shoot a foam ball into my trashcan. If they make it, they get to steal a second star.
The game includes 24 questions. Each question has a slide. There is also a "home" slide with a column for each team. Everyone starts out with 10 stars. There is a link to each question from the home slide, and a link back to the home slide on each question page.
