Spin to Win Review Game – Interactive WhiteboardPosted: May 24, 2012 | |
The Spin to Win Review Game could be a great tool to use as a review in any subject! The game was developed by James Hollis of Teachers Love SmartBoards and is available for download from my Google Docs site by clicking HERE.
After downloading the Smart NoteBook file, save the file to your “H” drive immediately and change the name of the file. The downloaded file is read-only, requiring you to save.
I strongly suggest that you watch the YouTube video on how to play and enter questions into the game before starting. The YouTube video can be accesses by clicking HERE. The movie embedded in the NoteBook file does not appear to work.
Once you have watched the video begin entering the questions for each point value. You will enter three questions and answers for each point value.
When you are ready to play the game organize you class into 2 groups. Have a student click on the Spin Button, once to start the spin and again to stop the spin. Click on the point value button that the spinner stopped on to go to that question. The student has the option of clicking on one of three questions by clicking on the question number and then the star to go to the question.
Once the student has answered, reveal the correct answer. Then return to the Home screen by clicking the Home button. The next step before spinning again is to go to the ScoreBoard by clicking on the ScoreBoard Button in the center of the Spinner.
Once you are on the ScoreBoard screen, drag the appropriate numbers up to the Team ScoreBoard or subtract numbers to keep score.
The game can hold up to 300 questions, but you do not need to use all of the point values. If a student lands on a point value that you are not using, just have them spin again.
If you have a student who is finished with a project and has a few minutes. let the student enter questions and answers. Students love making up tests or review questions for you!
This game should be fun and once you have the game setup you can use the game year after year. And students are probably getting tired of Jeopardy!
