A classroom activity that will allow you to engage your students as they answer academic questions related to your choice of topic. How do you play? It is a game in which you design a small personalised Prize Board. You then ask students quiz questions for any subject at all. 1. Ask a random student to provide the answer 2. If they are correct, their name is entered on the Prize Board. 3. Play continues until all prizes are gone. 4. Students who answer correctly now get to remove the names of other students and add their own names - how UNFAIR! What is included? You will download a PowerPoint that provides space for questions to be added. Each question slide will include an embedded link to a video of a 2-minute timer.
