The Game Show format is hands-on and experiential, with many of the challenges inviting students to role play.

This guidance lesson & classroom game encourages reflective thinking, and is designed for students to show off and build on their smarts in different ways.

What’s needed to play the Expected Versus Unexpected Game Show?

✔ If using in person, It is best used with a Promethean White Board or projector that that can be hooked up to your computer.

✔ If using for distance learning, all students need access to the internet. You can share the google slides™ file with your students and/or share your screen!

✔ Want to go screen-free? No problem! This Game Show also comes with printable task cards with the same prompts as the Game Show challenges.

Provides lots of flexibility….

Given that the GAME SHOW takes 40-60 minutes to play, and sometimes we just don’t have that much time….or that the GAME SHOW works best projected on a original screen, and sometimes the technology breaks down….or that there are days when we walk into the classroom and just know that a whole classroom game is not going to fly that day….and sometimes students need more quiet, reflective activities……I have included more than 6 additional formats that do not require the use of the internet. (Note: the additional activities do involve some printing prep-work.)
