Using Games for Review and Increasing Interaction
Games can be a great way to review materials as well as to encourage interaction between students in the classroom. These games can be built in PowerPoint by just adding your own questions. Since you have access to each individual slide, you can also customize the graphics and look of each game.
The following templates are in zip files along with accompanying music and graphic files. The games were created by different people who offered them for free download from the web for classroom use. Once you download the zip file, you must unzip it using a software program like WinZip. Make sure all the files stay in the same folder so that the links will work.
