1 class period
The class will be divided into five teams which will take turns answering questions about the Pilgrims. Correct answers are worth either 50, 40, 30, 20, or 10 points.
Play begins with a person from Team 1 trying to answer the first question. If their answer is correct, Team 1 scores 50 points. But if the answer is not right, Team 2 can answer and score 40 points if correct. Each time a wrong answer is given, the next team in order can answer with the point value reduced by 10.
The order to be followed is given before each question.
Teams take turns going first. A new question is always worth 50 points.
Easy-to-follow Teacher Instructions and answer key included, along with a 20-question follow up quiz to measure student progress. The quiz can also be given as a homework assignment.
