to make more questions, you can just copy and paste the existing question slides and edit your
hyperlinks. The blue arrow buttons will take you to the next question if the answer was correct or back to
the question if the answer was incorrect.
How to play the game:
When the question slide comes up it will bring up the questions and answer choices. Click on the answer
students choose. If the answer is incorrect, the slide will explain why the answer was incorrect. You can
then click on the blue back arrow to go back to the question. If the answer is correct, the slide will
explain why the answer is correct. Next, you click on the blue forward arrow to go to the next question.
To Setup Game:
Click on the PowerPoint outline tab and edit the questions. There is a clear box on top of the original correct
answer, labeled with “answer” to the left. Move that box to the top left hand corner of the PowerPoint slide so you
know where you put it (remember it is clear). Move the box off your new correct answer and place it on the original
correct answer. Grab the clear box you put in the corner and place it on top of your correct answer. Finally, slide
the word answer down to your answer. Be sure it does not overlap onto the actual slide, it is only for editing, you
do not want the students to see it.

How to setup:
You can play Hollywood Squares however it works best for your class. When you enter your questions you can
decide how you want it setup.
Real Hollywood Squares: Enter only one answer. The questions are then more or less true or false. The students or
teams then decide if they agree or disagree. If they are correct they get the square. If they are wrong, their
opponent gets the square.
Hollywood Squares: board game version: When writing the choices, use all the answers. One team will read the
question and choose an answer. They can bluff with a wrong answer or use a correct answer. The other team then
has to agree or disagree. If they are correct, they get the square; if not, the other team gets the square.
No bluff version: Play as a multiple choice game. Let the team pick the correct choice from three multiple choice
answers, or don’t put answers up at all and let them give you the answer. Correct answer gets the square. Incorrect
answer gives the square to the other team.
The easiest way to edit questions is to open the “Outline” view. At the bottom left hand corner of the screen choose
the “Normal” view which gives you a three section window, then choose the “Outline” option for the panel on the
left. You can then double click on Question and Choice 1, then just type your information in there.
How to play the game:
Have the students pick a star from “Slide 2”. Click on the star’s picture. Go to the page and do the question. At the
top click on the left box if the X teams wins the square, the right box if the O team wins the square. This will bring
you to the letter page. Just click on the letter. Then, go back and click on the left or right box of that star to show
who won the box.
To Setup Game:
Click on the PowerPoint outline tab and edit the questions. On the slide there is an arrow pointing to the original
correct answer. Click and move the arrow to the right of the new correct answer.
To Play Game:
Use the keypad to navigate the questions. To move on to the next question click the arrows pointing right. You can
also review previous questions by using the left arrows. Choose your answer and click on the line to reveal the
correct answer. If time runs out before you answer you will not be able to answer. After time expires you can still
see the question and answer choices.
Ideas:
Have students come up one at a time to answer a question on the SmartBoard. Be sure you don’t click forward to
the next question until the child is there so they have full time.

How to setup:
Use the outline tab to fill in your questions and answers.
How to use the game:
Students can choose a category and dollar amount. Click on that slide. They can give you an answer. Click on
answer to display the correct answer. When you’ve given the appropriate points, click Back to the board to
choose another question. The question you were just on should be gone now.
How to play the game:
Click on the chosen category point value to take you to the question. Follow the prompts on the screen to get to
the answer or back to the game board.
How to setup the game:
Click on the triangular boxes and drag them off of the game board. To edit the game board, click on the words in the
blue boxes. This should put white dots around the word. Click on the word again and it should get grey dots around it.
Now double click on the word. You can now edit your words. When you have changed all of the words, highlight all 6
boxes with triangles in the grey work space then drag them over to cover the boxes.
How to play the game:
This should be played with one person looking at the screen and another facing away from the screen. Click on the
triangle in the lower left hand corner of the pyramid. It should disappear. Your term should now appear. The student
looking at the screen now needs to get the other player to say the word, without saying the word (much like taboo). If
they get it, click on the word again and a dollar amount will appear. If they pass, you can click on another triangle to
get another word to try. Once they have worked all the way to the top, they can go back and work on what they
passed. They can see the ones on which they passed on the screen throughout the game.
Ideas:
You could have one person looking away from a projected screen and the rest of the class looking and trying to help.
You could also push the ppt out with a program to students in pairs at laptops and have the whole room working in
pairs.

The easiest way to move these sets is to draw a box around the answer choice, starting in the grey work area –
then drag the group. Start with the Circle covering the current correct answer. Select and place the group right
above the left hand corner of the slide. Rearrange the two green lines to the choices you want to have removed as
hints and the last remaining incorrect answer. Finally go back and move the circle AND INVISIBLE SQUARE onto
the correct answer.
To Play Game:

wrong and X will appear. If you would like a 50/50 ask for a hint. As soon as you get the correct answer a flower
will fly in. Click on the flower to return to the original pluckable flower. The petal you chose should disappear. Now

How to setup:
On “Slide 2”, there are both white boxes and blue boxes. Don’t touch the blue boxes in setup. Delete the boxes that
are already up in the play space. Copy and paste the corresponding white squares up into the play space. There is a
blue box with the white boxes to be used as the space filler. If you are playing with more than one class, save and
close the PowerPoint and reopen it for the next class.
Double click on the word Category and enter the category for this word.
How to play the game:
Students will choose one letter at a time. Click on the blue box containing the letter. That will take you to the letter
screen where you need to click again. If the letter is in your puzzle, click on the white boxes where you put the letter
and the letter should appear with applause. If it is not, hit the icon in the upper right hand corner of the screen and it
will give another sound.
How to setup:
Use the outline tab to fill in your questions. Questions should have 4 answers, not necessarily all realistic.
How to play the game:
When the question slide comes up it will bring up the questions and answer choices. Click on the answer students
choose. It will ask if this is your final answer. If you click on yes, the answer will be revealed. If you click on no, it
will laugh.
Lifelines:
There are three lifelines: phone a friend, poll the audience, and 50/50. Depending how you have your game setup
with your students you can play these different ways. If you click on the icon for one of these three it will take you
to a new slide. For “Phone a friend” the student can ask one person to help them. With “Poll the audience”, the
class gets to vote on the answer. For 50/50 the teacher eliminates two of the incorrect answers. Click on the U
shaped arrow and it will return you to the question.
If you print out the lifelines and letters, you can give each team the letters and lifelines. As teams use their lifelines,
have them give them to you so you know who has used which ones. All of the teams can answer each question by
having them pull out the answer then everyone showing the answer at once.

How to play:
This game takes no time to prepare! After the intro, one person will be prompted to setup the ships. They simply
click on the appropriate number of squares in a row as prompted. When the last ship has been set, the computer
will need a second to layer the non ships. That person should click on Hide Boats.
The student clicks to find where the boats are in the least number of guesses. This does not help practicing
graphing.
How to play:
This game takes no time to prepare! Students will need two computers to play the game. After the intro, students will be prompted to
setup their ships. They simply click on the appropriate number of squares in a row as prompted. When the last ship has been set, the
computer will need a second to layer the non ships.
One student should click on “go to my calls” and pick a space. They will call the space by coordinates. The player still looking at their
boats will click and call hit or miss (if it is a hit – there will also be an explosion). If it is a hit, the calling player will click the red box to place
a red X. If it is a miss they will click the green box to place a green O in the space. That player should then click “go to my boats.” The
player looking at boats should click “go to my calls” and do as the other student did.
If for some reason one student needs to get up, both players can click show/hide boats and they will all be hidden. When the game
resumes, they can click it again and they will re-appear.
This game can also be setup by a parent and the student plays by themselves looking for boats. The parent sets up the boats then hides
the boats and the student clicks to find where the boats are in the least number of guesses. This does not help practicing graphing.

This is the classic road game made a little higher powered.
Teachers – consider using this in your classroom for naming objects that start with this letter in your classroom!
How to play the game:
Mission: Find the letters of the alphabet in order from A to Z in the area that surrounds your car.
Make sure you are paying attention – letters are everywhere:
License plates, billboards, road signs, sky banners, roof tops, vehicle decals.
Rules: When you get stuck looking for a letter for over 1 minute, start again at A – but now be looking for that letter
and A, and move on looking for 2 letters at the same time. It is typical to get stuck on letters: J, V, Q and Z.
Skipping. Letters must be located OUTSIDE of the vehicle. You may use up to 4 letters per sign.

How to setup: This game is completely independent of questions and preparation. Simply gather questions in 6 different
categories and list those categories in the text box.
How to play the game: Initially all players will start in the center. To put a player in a new place, find their number in
the new space and click. To remove a player from the previous space, click the number on that space and they will
disappear. A role of 6 initially will put a player at the crossroads. Those are the only spaces where a team can earn a wedge.
Whatever color students land on determines the category of question they are to answer. When the team answers the
question correct they can roll again. Click on the appropriate wedge to make it appear in the space. You CANNOT make the
wedges disappear! If a player lands directly in the center, they can pick any question of their choice.

How to setup: No setup required – just gather questions and use this as your gameboard!
How to play the game: Divide students however you like, up to 12 players or teams can easily
play. Designate each team an animal from slide two. (You may want to make cards for the
students, so you can easily tell who is which team.) Roll the dice by touching the dice on the
screen. Ask a question and if they get it correct, drag the team’s character to the starting line and
move that many spaces. There are two animals, so when you move the animal one will be left
behind as well.
Ideas: If a team gets an answer wrong, the team whose space they would have landed on (or are
on) get to answer the question and steal the move if they get it right.

How to setup: Go to slide two. Click once on the first box, this will show you the reverse side of
that panel. Double click. If it says nothing, click OK – flip it again and try again. It should say a
color or an object. Type what you want it to read. Repeat for remaining bars. If there are more
than you want, right click on the bar and choose delete.
How to play the game: To reveal answers with a SmartBoard, just touch the correct box. Have
students pick cards in pairs. If theirs are a match, leave them turned over and continue playing by
choosing two more cards.
How to setup: On slide two, type in the categories of words your students have learned.
Then go to the corresponding slide and type 4 words for that category. It is best to change
the first category, then go change those words. When you have finished, return to slide
two and change the next category.
How to play the game: This should be played with one person looking at the screen and
another facing away from the screen. Click on the triangle in the lower left hand corner of
the pyramid. Your terms should now appear. The student looking at the screen now needs
to get the other player to say the words in the list, without saying the word (much like
taboo). If they get it, they will move on to the next word, then the next category.
Ideas: You could have one person looking away from a projected screen and the rest of
the class looking and trying to help. You could also push the game out to students in pairs
at laptops and have the whole room working in pairs.

another letter. Letters can be added on the beginning or the end of the forming word. The winner
is the last person before someone creates a word.
