PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

About this resource:
Teachers of all grade levels and content areas can transform any assignment into a fun St. Patrick’s Day activity with this versatile PowerPoint game for interactive whiteboards.

I created this resource with my uber-boring test-prep worksheets in mind, but the convenient, content-neutral format lends itself to many possibilities. Use it with a worksheet, textbook, or set of task cards that you already have on hand for an instant, prep-free, motivational game – no cutting, laminating, or typing required!

When students respond correctly to whatever task you assign, they get to come up to the whiteboard and tap on a shamrock. Most of the shamrocks disappear when tapped, but one lucky four-leaf clover will reveal a dancing leprechaun and his treasure. The student who finds the leprechaun receives whatever prize you like to give. To continue play, click the “Play Again” button to reset the game board and hide the leprechaun in a new spot.

Check out this video demo to see how it works.

Required Materials:
- PowerPoint installed on your computer
- Interactive whiteboard
- Worksheet(s), task cards, or questions related to your content area
- Prizes (candy, bonus points, special passes, treasure box, etc.)

Note:
I created this game in PowerPoint 2007, but I believe I've used animation techniques that are compatible with any version of PowerPoint. If you happen to come across a compatibility issue, please feel free to email the address listed on the copyright page, and I’ll do my best to get it worked out. :)
