As educators we often play games with our students, and many of us say these are some of our most engaging days. So from July 15 to July 24, I invite you to link up your favorite games to use in the classroom! (See the end of this post.) These could be described in blog posts and/or actual products. Please keep the focus on games to play with Grades 7 – 12. Links are placed in random order. After linking up, please provide credit by adding a clickable link back to this website (www.stefbubsclassroom.weebly.com) on a blog post, social media, or on your product page but not your blog or shop itself. Finally, please participate in the spirit of the Olympic games and cheer each other on. Take some time to view other's links that interest you. Support each other by leaving comments, possibly following each other, and voting for your gold, silver, and bronze medal favorites starting July 17th!
...and as they say in Rio, Let the games begin!!!!
Here I are my Top 4 favorite game and game strategies.
Each player takes their game board and places it in a dry erase sheet protector. Each player chooses a graph for which the other player will guess. Choose who goes first. That person will ask a yes or no question of the other player to try to narrow down the possibilities. As the player is able to eliminate possibilities, they can cross off that graph. Through process of elimination, players will eventually be able to guess which graph was chosen. There is one question per turn. I have a variety of graphs that students can play with including linear, systems of linear equations, and inequalities.
