  • How to Play: Divide the students into six teams. Give each team a chalkboard or dry erase board or some other answer-writing object. Pick a team to start and have them pick a category and point number. Go to that question and have each of the teams write their answers on the boards. Give the number of points chosen to the teams that are correct. You can keep score in the boxes on the scoreboard slide. At the end of the game, go to the “Big Points” question and have all the teams write their answers. The “Big Points” question is worth 50 points. Whichever team has the most points at the end of the game wins!
