About this resource:
Celebrate the season and make any worksheet a lot more fun with this versatile PowerPoint game for interactive whiteboards. When students respond correctly to whatever task you assign, they come up to the whiteboard and tap a snowflake. Most of the snowflakes just disappear when tapped, but one special snowflake will reveal a gift. The student who finds the hidden gift receives whatever prize you like to give. To continue play, click the “Shuffle” button to reset the game board and hide the present in a new spot. Check out this video demo
to see how it works.
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 worksheets or task cards that you already have or simply ask verbal questions for an instant, prep-free, motivational game – no cutting, laminating, or typing required!
- PowerPoint installed on your computer
- Interactive whiteboard (recommended)
- Worksheet(s), task cards, or questions related to your content area
- Prizes (candy, bonus points, special passes, treasure box, etc.)
I created this game in PowerPoint 2010, 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. :)
