How I Use It
This is a fun activity to use as an exit ticket or to close out class. It's extremely engaging, and students love the competitive aspect of the game. The format is simple and once kids understand correlating the symbols on the main screen to the symbols on their personal screens they can quickly and easily answer questions. What doesn't work is that slower readers or kids who answer questions more slowly can get frustrated. There's no way to differentiate.
My Take
I'd like to see the option to send the main game screen to kids' individual screens, simply to solve logistical problems. In a large tech room some kids won't be able to see the screen.
