This is a PowerPoint slide game I've created that combines a trivia section with a fun carnival-style target gallery.
In my class I use the combination of a smartboard and wii remote hooked up to my laptop. Students touch the correct answer on the board with the quickest then going on to have a go earning bonus points with the target game. If you don't have this technology a wireless mouse works just as well.
The presentation contains 18 question slides with a space for 2 questions on each slide for a total of 36 questions. There is also a scoreboard to help keep track of how teams are doing.
The sequence is as follows:
1 - Students select from one of eighteen question boxes. These change color after being selected so you won't pick them again.
2 - A blank question slide appears. The teacher can then start the question by pressing the button at the top of the screen.
3 - The question and possible answers appear. Students then press the button next to the correct answer as a timer fills up.
4 - The teacher can then press the green button at the top of the screen to show the correct answer. You then have a choice to select the game button or to go back to the question select screen.
5 - If you select the game button you can then start the game. The PowerPoint will automatically keep track of the students hits. You can then go to a scoreboard to mark their team's question tally. You can then go back to the question board to start another round.
The questions and answers are currently set to a default example however you can easily change these by simply moving the location of the answer boxes. In the next few months I will be uploading some themed versions but I'm offering this now so teachers can play around with the game to suit their own classes.
Please be aware that power points of this nature rely on a series of carefully placed animation triggers to work properly. If you insert additional slides (or delete others) it will not function properly as this will mess up the system.
If you would like to know how to hook up a wii remote to your laptop or if you would like information on how to create a smartboard for less than $100 please contact me. They're not necessary for the game but add greatly to the experience for students.
