I always play a PowerPoint game with my kids before a big test! In my opinion, playing these kinds of games is the best way to help students figure out which topics they need to focus on before the “big day.” Plus, it’s a fun way for students to learn from each other!
My students’ favorite PowerPoint game is Connect4! I know your students will love it, too.

Use this template to create a baseball style review game. I really like playing Baseball with my students because they all have to participate! Students can choose to “swing” for singles, doubles, triples, and home runs! It really gets the competitive juices flowing!
