1. This file is a template, and can be used for ANY SUBJECT!! All you have to do is plug in the content you want your students to learn/review!
2. Everything is all set for you. Before you can use this, you have to enter the questions and answers you want your students to learn. (Scroll through slides #7-#30. Type in your questions and answers into the designated spots--they are highlighted in red.) You can insert up to 24 questions.
- Slide #5 shows the Virtual Game Board. Slide #6 shows the Hats!
- Teachers can choose to split your class into different teams, OR, the class can work together as one entire group. (You can give them a target score to reach).
- The objective of the game is to correctly answer as many questions as possible, and earn the most amount of Fireworks! (Fireworks serve as points in this game.)
- If you choose to split your class into teams, using 2-3 teams works best. Of course, you know your class best, so choose what works for you! This game is flexible! It is probably a good idea to have a student be a “Team Captain” for each team.
- The teacher also decides on the sequence of the game (Teams can alternate taking turns answering questions, or it can be a race to see which team answers correctly first. Teams can write their answers down, on whiteboard, etc.)
- *YOU MUST BE IN “PRESENT MODE” for this game to work!*
- Start on Slide #5--show this to your class. Tell them this is the game board. Clicking on each image on the board will take you to a different question. Start by clicking on the first image (In the top left).
- For this example, Team 1 begins. Click the first image...the first question will appear. Team 1 writes down/verbally gives their answer (teacher decides how students give their answer)
- When ready to reveal the correct answer, click on the blue box on the screen.
- The correct answer will show. Click on the green box/arrow to proceed.
- The “Hats” page will appear. If the Team answered the question correctly, they get to select a Hat they wish to open. (This is how they earn virtual fireworks).
- Click on the Hat they chose. They earn the amount of fireworks displayed. (They can earn 1, 2, 3, or 4 fireworks!). Keep track on the whiteboard how much fireworks each team has, as the game progresses. Click the green box to return to the game board. Repeat!
- On the whiteboard, you will also need to keep track of which numbered hats have been selected (students cannot choose the same hats once it has been selected).
- If a team answers a question incorrectly, they do not get to choose a hat. The next turn will begin. Click the Green arrow to return to the game board. Repeat! HAVE FUN!!
