*This is a shortened version of the original Amazing Race of Science Game. If timing does not allow you to play the game for the intended 5 days, you can purchase each individual leg of the race separately. Included in the attached Leg 2 file are 5 Challenges, a Detour, and a Roadblock.
The Amazing Race of Science is designed as an end of the year review game. Students will compete in a format similar to the television show, going from task to task to complete each leg of the race and be the first team to arrive. Teams must follow clues and instructions and make their way to the various checkpoints in different areas of science. The game is five days long with the first day as an introductory day and the remaining four days designated as legs of the race. A bundle of all files needed for the entire 5 day game can be purchased in my TPT store.
In the Amazing Race of Science Game:
1. Students will start each leg of the race with a challenge.
2. They will then work as a team to complete all tasks in that leg of the race.
3. Points will be earned based on the position they finish that leg of the race. First team to finish each day will earn the most points, last team to finish will earn the least amount of points.
The game includes team challenges, detours and roadblocks. Tasks include numerous activities where students are given basic supplies and have to build something that meets certain requirements. Even if areas of science have not been covered yet, it is still possible to participate in the game as it has more of a general science/ problem solving/team building focus.
