How to Play

  • A student/team chooses a letter and answers the question or completes the task on the corresponding slide.

  • If they get it correct, the teacher will take them to a reward page where they will play a card game for points.

  • The teacher will show them a card with a certain point value.

  • The student/team decides whether to take the points on the card or draw again to possibly add more points to the current value.

  • The teacher repeats this process until they either decide to take their accumulated points or reach a bomb card in which case they get 0 points and their turn is over.

  • Students can also find rare cards where they have a choice: They can either get 5 points or take a chance and reveal the card, from which they will either lose all their points or get to change points with another team.

  • The student/team with the most points 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.
