Battle of knowledge

PREPARATION:

Before class, create 16 review questions. Cut out eight red circles and eight black circles. Take the masking tape and create a sixteen-sectioned grid on the floor. The grid should be four sections wide by four sections deep. Each section should be equal in size. Divide the children up into two teams.

WHAT YOU WILL DO:

To win the game, you must get four circles in a row for your team. Taking turns, each team throws the beanbag or sock into an unoccupied square and then gets a chance to answer a question.

If the throwing team answers the question correctly, they get to put one of their circles in that square. If the throwing team answers incorrectly, the other team gets a chance to answer the same question. If the other team answers correctly, they get to put one of their circles in the square. Once a circle is in a square, it cannot be removed. Members of each teams can work together to answer the question, but each team member must take a turn throwing the beanbag or sock. If neither team gets four in a row, the game is a draw.
