This is a PowerPoint review game that concludes my Minerals Lesson that I offer on TpT. This review game contains 20 questions associated with minerals and five for fun bonus questions about minerals in the movies as well as a final question wager question.
Also included are hundreds of unit PowerPoint slides, bundled homework, unit notes, and much more from my Geology Topics Unit that I offer on TpT.
It looks a lot like Jeop_ _ _ _ but I do not play this way. I break the class into six groups and let the students use their notebook and work together in their small groups. Students answer the questions one a time as the slideshow advances. After all the questions have been covered, the answer version is provided so students can self assess. Each question is previewed before the answer is revealed so the teacher can call upon students. Please see all of the Q+A below, as well as my entire Geology Topics Unit that I offer on TpT. This is the PowerPoint review game that concludes my minerals and properties of minerals lesson that I offer on Tp and just a small part of Geology Topics entire unit.
