In this video-based game, your students will be asked to count the number of times a specific Christmas ornament falls from the top of the screen to the bottom of the screen. While the concept seems pretty simple, the game gets more and more complicated as you go!
Not only is this game a guaranteed win with your group, it's super flexible, so you can choose how you want to play:
• Play it as an upfront game - Bring up two or three students at a time, and have all three write down their answers on a small whiteboard. Then whoever gets it right stays. The others get replaced by new contestants.
• Play it as a higher-lower-equal game - Bring up one student to make the first guess. Then have the rest of the room vote on whether they think the actual answer is higher than, lower than, or equal to the answer that the student on stage gave.
• Play it as a quiz - Print the included Answer Sheets and give one to each student. Then remove the ""answer"" videos from your presentation. Show each of the ""question"" videos and have your students fill in their answers. After the last question, have a leader collect all of the answer sheets and grade them so that you can reveal the winner at the end of the night.
And those are just a few suggestions. The possibilities are literally endless!
