This is a PowerPoint game used to review everything learned in our 10 week introductory Spanish class. Includes: greetings, numbers, time, colors, days/months, dates, I like, I don't like, address, phone number, and a few basic daily activities
To play students are split into small groups (usually 3-4). Each group gets a whiteboard to write their answers on. All students are also given a printed "board" where they will have to write down the answers to all the questions. The first slide of the PowerPoint shows the point values that could be gained from answering a question correctly. Groups can earn +1, +2, +3, -1, -2, -3 or all. If groups get the volcano picture (-3 or all) they lose 3 points if they are already in negative points otherwise they lose all their points and go back to 0. Points are random. Each slide has one of the corresponding point pictures on it.
Going around the room, groups pick a number from the number board (3rd slide). Teacher will have to click on the number which will go to a different slide with a question on it. Working together, the group members need to come up with their answer and write it on their whiteboard. If the group gets it correct, they get to decide if they want to keep the points or pass them to a different team (they don't know what points they will be getting at this point). Once the group has made their decision click the screen to show the picture for the number of points earned from that question.
If a group does not get the correct answer, I go on to the next group until a group gets the correct answer. The group that gets the correct answer to the question is the group that gets to decide to keep or pass the points.
The answer to each question will appear on the slide with the first click and the points picture appears with the second click. To get back to the number board, click the house at the bottom of the slide after revealing the points.
This game is easily modified. Just retype the questions and answers or change the pictures to match what you are teaching. If you play it often you will want to move the point pictures around or students will start to remember where all the different points are located.
