    review games

    I have tried these for unit review games in science and social studies with success. One game is the familiar "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire." In this game, I got my kids together by rows to be on teams. I would read a question to the first student in the first row. He/she has to answer the question independently, as they do on the show. If the student doesn't know the answer, he/she can use a lifeline: "phone" a friend, 50/50, or ask the "audience." The audience is the row. Instead of phone a friend, the child asks anybody in the row. The kids love doing this.

    Another game I have played is Jeopardy. You can get sticky pad notes and write a statement on each note. Set the notes on the board at the front of the room by level of difficulty, the same as they do in Jeopardy, and give each question a dollar amount. Kids can be in teams to answer the question, and the team decides on a final question for the statement.

    Have fun reviewing.
