Use active learning to help your students review their reading of To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. Throughout this power point presentation, teams of students recall characters and plot events in order to compete to shoot baskets into a trash can.
For the first two rounds, students simply identify the characters, but in rounds three – five, students answer questions about the plot. The difficulty increases throughout each round with more challenging questions.
Research shows that students often learn best when they can move, and this game motivates them with their love of sports. When you put your students in heterogeneous groups for a game with friendly competition, it is an excellent way to meet the needs of all of your students and reward them for their success.
The 15 slide power point presentation includes slides with the rules, teacher instructions, and a key. If desired, game questions can be edited to meet the needs of your students.
