Use multiple choice questions from any PDF, webpage, Powerpoint or text file to instantly make an exciting, competitive game to promote discussion and encourage reflection on meta-knowledge. Works really well on a Smartboard or other Interactive White Board.
Follow these instructions for using the activity, but remember to give students plenty of time to discuss possible answers and decide how much to gamble. This enables them to evaluate their own knowledge and understanding.
You can practice playing the game with this online example then download the game for your personal use.
