Our Top 5 games have been fabulously popular with teachers. Very easy to play and almost a full lesson in one complete powerpoint and team scorecard.
Here is a new version - Top 3. Download and play instantly. Rules shown. If you don't want the thinking song playing, just delete the little speaker button on each slide. But its good for giving teams a time limit to brainstorm their answers.
All answers taken from http://top-10-list.org/ So send students there if there is any dispute! Or go there and just replace these questions with your own choices.... Easy peasy. Enjoy playing these games!
One additional trick. You (the teacher) will have to know the answers in advance. They are in the notes section of the presentation. Either copy/print them before you play or show them when on the first screen - go to the right of the presentation, right click, select Screen - Speaker Notes. The answers will appear in a little box for you and you can only see them. Select when a right answer is given.
*Note. In this game, students don't have to get the answer in the right ranking to get full points. If they have written down the answer, they get the full points. Unlike Top 5 which you can play where if the answer isn't in the right ranking, the team doesn't get full points, only 21 point.
A couple more games with interesting questions/categories.
I`m wondering about the scoring. Does a team get points for having an answer in the correct spot, or for having it within the top 3? For example - most-watched sitcoms. What if I put Sienfeld, Friends, Game of Thrones (and the answer is Friends - 10, Simpsons - 7, Game of Thrones - 5)? How many points is that?
You can play it either way. Most liberal/flexible is position doesn't matter. So they'd get 15 points (10 + 5).
But if you want to play the strict version, if not in the exact position, they only get 2 points. So in your example they'd get 7 total - 2 + 5 (correct spot).
thanks! yes, it makes sense!
