How to Play
Students play in teams and each team starts with 3 lives.
Everyone stands up.
When the game starts, each team will read a sentence one by one.
When the bomb goes off, the team reading loses 1 life.
If a team loses all their lives, they're out (they sit down).
The last team standing is the winner!
I have also played this game where students were in pairs and each pair only had one life. There are many ways to play this game, so feel free to adjust with what works best for your class.
If using the version of the PowerPoint without the characters in the background, there is an opportunity to type the text you want the students to read on the slide itself if you move the bomb over to one side.
(based on experiences from me and other teachers)
We are still in the process of collecting runtime information for this game. If you have used it with your students and would like to share how long it took to play, please fill out the form below. It would be very much appreciated and would be a big help to other teachers like you!
