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 power point presentation or google slides™. (Note: the additional activities do involve some printing prep-work.)
