**This is an Interactive PowerPoint. Make sure you have PowerPoint 2010 or above.
My students love this game! I use this as an end of the year review for my social skills groups for varying ability levels. Categories include: Making and Maintaining Friendships, Giving Compliments, Disagreements, Facial Expressions, and Social Inferences. Mystery points are used because some of my students on the Autism Spectrum have a difficult time with losing and can become obsessed with points! This way, they have no control over how many points someone may or may not get. I found this format to be way less competitive and we can spend more time on the content. We still add up the points to have a winning and losing team to address that skill at the end of the lesson.
Feel free to alter categories/questions/answers to better fit your student’s needs. All formatting and hyperlinks have been added, so all you need to do is rewrite questions/answers. You can also change the category letters back to dollar amounts if you choose. Divide your group/class into two teams. Have one or two students go up to the board (I use a SmartBoard) and select a question. Allow the students to answer the question before revealing the answer. If they get it right, then mark the points on a piece of paper to add up at the end. Then go back to the game board for the other team’s turn. Questions that have already been answered turn dark blue so students don’t select the same questions. Keep playing until all the questions are answered. Enjoy!
