BAZINGA - an awesome review game for most any subject and any grade. Students are in teams, I ask questions, and the students answers them. If a team is correct they have the chance to pick a Bazinga Card and we do what it says (e.g. double your score, erase 1 point from another team, switch the team captain of the winning team with the team captain of the losing team, etc.).
A pinner said: "i put a box like this on my desk last year and it was ALWAYS full of notes, stories and drawings from my kids. If they began to tell a story during a lesson I'd say "oh! box!" This way I heard the story AND kept the lesson going." Great idea!
