I came across this game from one of my peers and think it’s really awesome. In fact I have been using this regularly this year as a fun and creative way to review before a test.
So far I have used it prior to my grade 10 chemistry and biology test using the practice questions here – Chemistry Review Questions, Biology Review Questions.

Grudgeball.. a Review Game Where Kids Attack!
I have long been a huge fan of using games in the classroom. Much like sneaking broccoli into the pizza sauce, I have always felt that games were that perfect balance of teaching and engagement. When I first started, my consummate go to was Jeaopardy but….. Holy work Batman! Setting that all up was extremely time consuming. I wanted to find a way to have a quick go to game I could use with any set of questions. I bought myself a Nerf hoop and did a straight game of answer the question, get it right, shoot the ball and earn points. For a majority of the kids this was enough but for one of my classes, nothing could get them excited. For them, this game was accompanied by the sound of crickets, followed by awkward silence, followed again by crickets.

I have a management question about this game. How do students check their answers? I really want to try this game with my students but I want to be sure I can manage all aspects of the game.
You are the one who manages the game. You decide whether the answer given is correct or not.
