Description

Great for ZOOM! This Interactive American Presidents Trivia PowerPoint Jeopardy Style Game Show is perfect for celebrating President's Day in your classroom. Featuring sound effects, a self-scoring scoreboard, and 25 questions plus a challenge question, this President's Trivia game is great for students in grades 3-4. I also like to have the students play this game to see just how much they really know about the office of the president. You can play this game with students in teams and have the kiddos use whiteboards to show their answers, but it also works well for a center in your classroom with only 2-4 students.

Best of all, each theme also includes a blank editable game, so you can create your own questions.

Be sure to check on the Preview to see a large sampling of the questions in this game!

Why Use This Game?

  • This game is fun, interactive, and keeps your students engaged. They don't even realize they're learning!
  • This game can be played with a whole class or with small groups at a computer.
  • Great to use with ZOOM or any other virtual meeting format. Just share your screen. this game does not work in Google Slides.

There are 25 questions in the following categories: The White House, Office of the President, Presidential Firsts, Childhood and Family, and Name the President. I like to play this game in groups and have the kiddos use whiteboards to show their answers.

This American Presidents Trivia PowerPoint Game Show includes:

2 game shows: a game with questions and a blank editable game. Each game includes:

  • A gameboard slide
  • 25 question and answer slides and an optional Challenge Round question
  • A self-scoring scoreboard slide – no typing in scores – they are automatically updated when you click that a player has answered a question correctly!
  • Buttons to add or delete points from a player’s score
  • A reset button that defaults all scores to zero
  • Sound effects that play when the team answers a question correctly
  • Winner animation with applause when you select the winning team at the end of the game
  • Instructions for downloading, setting up the game, using the game on a SmartBoard or an Interactive White Board, and instructions for play

PLEASE NOTE: This game does not work on Google Slides. This fraction game plays on PowerPoint versions 2007, 2010, and 2014 AND Macintosh PowerPoint 2013! On the Macintosh version you will need to download the fonts KG Blank Space Solid and KG Shake It Off Chunky! This game uses Macros. You will have to enable Macros on your PowerPoint program in order for the automatic scoring to work. I have included instructions on how to enable Macros and how to play the game in a PDF file included in the download. Be sure to read them, and if you are having any difficulty, just email me and I will help you out!
