Product Description
Looking for a fun way to top off your OF MICE AND MEN unit? ThemeQuotes Trivia Games are just what you need!

What is a ThemeQuote?
A ThemeQuote is a thought-provoking, value-promoting quotation that relates to a theme of a work of literature. ThemeQuotes are authored by great minds such as Gandhi, Anne Frank, Mark Twain, Pearl Buck, Thoreau, Emerson, Amy Tan, Nietzsche, Thomas Jefferson, Eleanor Roosevelt, Kipling, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and more!

ThemeQuotes Trivia Games link famous quotations to the themes of the literature you teach!

Designed specifically for classroom use, ThemeQuotes Trivia Games combine the word-recognition skills of Wheel of Fortune™ with the challenge of Trivial Pursuit™.

Students might be asked to:
* answer questions about the author
* answer multiple choice, true/false, and open-ended questions based on the book
* answer questions that are related to the content of the book
* locate grammatical errors in dialogue
* translate idioms or dialectical phrases
* define, spell, or pronounce challenging words
* complete examples of figurative language
* unscramble anagrams or word merges
* and so much more!

* promote values
* encourage teamwork
* develop students’ understanding of theme

* provide a great review for objective tests
* are just plain fun!

FYI: Some of the questions go beyond the book, but that's the fun of the game.

It's a fun way to learn something new! Check out the preview for examples!
