Transform your classroom into the set of Regis Philbin's famous game show, "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?"! Not only will your students have a blast playing this game with their classmates, they will feel like they are on the show (especially when they hear all the different sound effects that one can recognize from the show).
The game covers surface area and volumes of cylinders, cones, and spheres. The game consists of a series of 27 questions that ask students to find the surface area, volume, height, radius, etc. of cylinders, cones, and spheres, as well as what each formula is used for. Each question has a dollar amount associated with it, which is the amount of money each team will get when they answer the question correctly. Split teams into two (or more depending on class size) and watch your students become engaged with this fun, collaborative, and exciting game - all while reviewing surface area and volume!
For each question, there are 3 slides associated with it. The first slide displays the question being asked, the four answer options, all while suspenseful music plays in the background. Once the first student solves the question and shares what they think the answer is, the teacher clicks to the next slide that still displays the question and answer options, but the music changes. After a quick wait time of 3-5 seconds, the teacher will click to the third and final slide for the question which displays the question, highlights the correct answer, and plays a different music sound effect. After the million dollar question has been answered, the final slide will play the game show's theme song music while the word "Winner!" bounces across the slide and changes color rapidly.
This PowerPoint file allows you to add, delete, or edit slides as you wish to accommodate your students' needs. This is a class favorite for my students and they always look forward to playing it as a review game before a quiz or test. The music really adds to the experience of the activity and makes it more fun and exciting for students. Enjoy!!
