End of the Year Review Game Madness
There are so many options for helping students review content for finals but which ones are the best? I have used several and below are some of my favorites.
Flippity – create your own automatically score tallied Jeopardy Game. Forever when setting up a Jeopardy game the students will bicker back and forth about the score. Take the frustration out by using Flippity which actually uses a Google Spreadsheet that is published. The creators of the Jeopardy Game aka Quiz Show also have flashcards which are great for review. Check them out you will not be disappointed.
Socrative & Kahoot! – Competition is helpful when trying to review with students and both of these sites help you easily great games to help review. You can use any internet ready device to use both programs and students do not have to create an account to use them.
ClassTools.net – ClassTools.net offers a free service teachers can use to create their own educational games. You can get rid of the ads for a fee but they are not extremely distracting. You can find a variety of tools on this site from fake facebook templates to arcade review games. They are easy to setup and embed in your own site.
Purpose Games – is a free service that allows users to create custom games, share games, and play games. You can create multiple choice games or go deeper and create interactive images and maps that have the user name the correct places or names of images.
Triventy – Very similar to Kahoot! You can write your own questions or edit existing quiz. All quizzes are presented on a large screen – just like you would run a presentation. Your students will use a short link (triv.in) to join the quiz from their laptops, tablets or smartphones – no need to install any App! Students can login with Google which makes that process very easy.
These are some of my favorite review sites. Do you have any you enjoy? Share them in the comments.
