Digital Math Review Game Show for K-2nd Grade using Interactive PowerPoint

The end of the year is upon us. Have your students already prepared for their math testing? Do you know that there is a fun and engaging way for your kiddos to enjoy math reviews in the classroom? Yes? YAAAAASSS! And that is to play a..... GAME SHOW! 

Wait, what?

Yes! And I know you're here for it! Game shows are fun in the classroom and they help students keep engaged! Imagine learning and playing at the same time? That's the vibe we're going for! When I was in the classroom my students were always begging me to play Kahoot! and Baamboozle. They loved those games and helped them keep awake in the classroom! 

But what if I tell you that there's also another game show that helps your students LOVE math reviews? (Because let's admit, not all students' cup of tea is math.) If you're familiar with the TV game show Jeopardy, then you know what I'm talking about!

You only need two things for this game show to work. A desktop computer (works on laptop, too!) and a Microsoft PowerPoint installed on your computer. Without PowerPoint, this game won't work. First, you need to set up teams or players (you can choose up to 5 teams!) and write their names on the scoreboard. Second, click the slideshow mode, and you're good to go! Make sure that you do not exit the game while playing because all the points will reset to 0 and you will have to start from the beginning.

Not familiar with Jeopardy? 

This game show is a quiz competition in which the students are presented with different math questions that they have to answer correctly. Teammates must collaborate before they give their answers. You can give them one minute (or more!) to think, solve the problem, and decide, and if the answer is correct, the team earns the number of points the question was worth.

So if you haven't created a math review for your Kindergarten to 2nd Graders, you should try this game show! It's fun, engaging, and NO PREP! Which will save you a huge amount of time in the classroom, especially during the end of the year!

Talk to you soon!
