This file was created for you to see if the different components of my Game Show PowerPoint Games will work on your computer with your version of Powerpoint. Please download the file and follow the instructions to test the game before purchase of any of my other Game Show games.
Review can be FUN with this highly engaging Game Show PowerPoint games! This game will make the skill of practicing important content something students are EXCITED to do! My class CHEERS when they see this game in the plans. PERFECT for review!
Put students in up to 6 groups to play this Jeopardy style game! Review days can be dull and kids just don't always put forth their best effort. But if you tell them that they will play a FUN review game to test their new knowledge, they will make sure to be listening to your every word and working hard to get the point for their team!
Watch the Game Show PowerPoint Video to see how it works!!
I play this game a little differently. I like to have all students ENGAGED and REVIEWING every question. So, I do this by having them answer every question. One team chooses the category and amount. EVERYONE answers the questions with their groups and records their answer on their whiteboards. The team, whose turn it is, show me their answer and if correct, I award them the points. If incorrect, any team that has the correct answer can go for the steal and get the points for that question. Then the next team gets to choose the category and points.
If you have any questions BEFORE you buy, please feel free to leave me a Q & A and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
