This "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire-style" review game* will enrich and supplement the way a Social Studies unit is reinforced in the classroom.
The game provides the teacher with an effective method of review that allows the students to play against each other in pairs, while motivating them not only to use their acquired knowledge and be challenged by it, but also to have fun with it.
A great asset for any middle-school Social Studies program that will simplify the review process for the teacher and significantly increase the enthusiasm of your students in class; so be prepared!
*Note: requires the free download of the "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Board" file available in my product list.
Put everything in the same folder, open the game board first, and then type in the title of the game text file EXACTLY as it appears in the download: SocialStudiesReviewGameRenaissanceReview1 (you may want to shorten it to "Renaissance Review 1" first). Click "Launch" and away you go!
- Put the game on a public server in a folder for your subject/class (eg. Social Studies 8)
- Students play one-on-one against each other using one computer between them with which they can access the game through the public server (this is especially effective if there are a number of variations of the game that review the overall theme, say, Renaissance).
