Include this PowerPoint game in the activities you plan for your students during the Read Across America celebration. Unlike the game Jeopardy, this game first asks a student a question and then the student gives the answer. There are six categories for the students to choose from: Nursery Rhymes, Fairy Tales, Series Books, Authors, Choose a Book, and Genres. It is probably best suited for higher-level 2nd graders through 5th graders, but could still be fun for 6th and 7th graders too as a challenge for them to see how many of the books and stories they can remember from their first years in school.
The questions get increasingly harder as the points get higher. Sample questions from each category can be found in the preview. It will provide lots of fun for everyone involved.
