Fortnite Last One Standing
No separate online/Zoom version - use game as is for online classes
Game concept based off of Fortnite - incorporates visuals, wording, fonts, and sound effects from the actual game
If playing the game more than once with the same students, merely reorder the game slides to make it feel like a fresh game
How to Play
All students stand up.
One by one they choose a box and read the word/sentence in the box.
The teacher clicks the box to reveal behind it if they stay standing, sit down, can "heal" a friend, or "take out" a foe.
Usually if there's one box left on a slide, I let the student choose whether they want to read that remaining box or test their luck on the next slide with 8 new boxes to choose from.
The last student standing is the winner.
I have no variations for this game at this time. If you played it a different way in your class and would like to share, I would be happy to hear from you in the comments below! :)
