This is a PowerPoint review game that is based on Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader? The questions in this game deal with nonfiction tools and genres. The tools and genres included are:
Encyclopedia, Almanac, Atlas, Dictionary, Thesaurus, Informational, Autobiography, Biography, Journal, Diary
For all of the animations and links to work, you must play the game in presentation mode.
Here is an overview of how the game works:
This is similar to "Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader", but there are no categories, peeks, copies, saves, or drop outs.
Students will be placed into 6 teams (or less). They will then chose question based on difficulty. The hardest questions are worth 5 points and the easiest are worth 1 point.
After all 10 questions have been answered, students will have the opportunity to double their point total by answering the final question correctly. If they answer incorrectly, they will lose all of their points.
To reveal the correct answer, the teacher or a student will click the apple on the page.
To update scores, student or teacher will click on the number under their team to increase the point total by 1 point. BE CAREFUL - You cannot decrease scores, so click carefully.
*This item was built and tested in PowerPoint 2010, so I am not sure if the animations and links will work in older versions of PowerPoint.
