This is a game designed to review facts and details from chapter one of Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry. This is a fantastic game that is easily adaptable to any book or concept.
The first step of the game is for the students to answer all the questions. Then they place their first bet. I instruct my students that they are not to bet more than half of their total, that way they will always have money left even if they get the answer incorrect. Once the correct answer is identified the students either add or subtract their bet from the total (based on if they got it correct or incorrect). The game continues this way until all questions have been answered. The winner is the student that has the most money in the end.
