How to Play
There are four nations: the Air Nomads, the Fire Nation, the Earth Kingdom, and the Water Tribe.
Divide your students into the 4 nations and then into 8 teams (2 teams per nation). With smaller class sizes, feel free to take this down to 1 team per nation - whatever your feel will work the best with your class.
Each team will get a mini whiteboard, dry erase marker, and an eraser.
Before starting the game, each team can select one or two starting locations on the map slide. When they’ve decided, the teacher will change the location’s color to the nation’s color by clicking on the location on the map. Repeated clicks on the same location will cycle through all the nations’ colors. Then, you are ready to start the game!
First, a team will a choose letter on the question-choosing slide. It will then take them to a new slide where a question or prompt will be presented. Teams will discuss and write the answer on their boards.
The team who holds up the correct answer first gets to attack/invade someone’s else land. The team who holds up the correct answer second is safe from an attack/invasion. Since each nation has 2 teams writing, it’s possible for one nation to get both first and second place which means that nation can attack any other nation they want.
The attacking nation chooses a piece of land next to one of their own to invade. If students are having trouble seeing which lands they can invade on the map slide, print out and have them reference the included “Map Guide.”
If the land they choose is unoccupied, they automatically take the land, and the teacher changes it to that nation’s color.
If the land they choose is occupied by another nation (excluding one that’s safe from an attack), they battle that nation in Rock, Paper, Scissors (one person from each nation stands up). If the attacking nation wins, they take the land from the other nation (the teacher changes its color). If they lose, the defending nation keeps the land (the color remains the same).
The team with the most occupied land at the end of the game wins!
Further instructions on how to play and edit the game can be found in the notes section of each slide. Also VERY IMPORTANT: Make sure you use the in-game hyperlinks to switch between slides - don't click or press the arrow keys or space bar - or you might reset the map and question-choosing slides.
Feel free to adjust the attacking/safety rule. Maybe you play with no safety at all or the first two teams with the correct answer get to attack.
If you just want to remain on the map slide throughout the game, you can delete or hide the question slides and just have a list of questions printed out that you will read to the students. This will also allow you to have as many or as little questions as you want.
No runtime information has been submitted yet for this number of students. If you have used it with your students and would like to share how long it took to play, please fill out the form on the last tab. It would be very much appreciated and would be a big help to other teachers like you!
