This activity is a modified version of the Science Challenge Game
that can be found in my TPT store. It includes some of the same tasks. For the full version game format you can visit my TPT Store.
Do you have extra time at the end of class and are in need of a science related time filler? The attached file includes 10 tasks that can take from 6-10 minutes to complete and 1 trivia game.
Tasks cover general science topics and can be used even if the material has not been covered in class. This adds to the challenge of the tasks. Tasks can be used as a time filler, warm up activity, or for an exit ticket.
Minimal preparation is needed. A class set of the student reference sheet and a class set of the properties of mineral chart can be made ahead of time and used whenever needed.
All tasks are presented in a PowerPoint format with all answer slides included.
