Santa Penalty Shootout Smartboard Game

SantaShootoutFans of both Christmas and football will love this game of knowledge, skill, and perhaps a little bit of luck!

First, the game asks how many players or teams will be playing (either one or two). The players can choose their team names and are even offered a chance to choose the colour of their jersey. Once initial setup for the players are complete, the kick-off commences, and the game begins!

The players take turns “handling” the ball, during which they’re asked a Christmas-related historical or cultural question. If they’re able to answer the question correctly, this gives them a chance to kick the ball towards the goal and earn a point. But if the Santa keeper catches it, no points are awarded, and the next team tries their luck. The team that knows more about Christmas (and how to defeat Santa) wins!

Transports Lesson Smartboard Game

TransportsChoose the picture of the type of transport that is mentioned by the narrator, and earn points based on correctness and speed!

There are two ways to convert this into a team game. Separate the class into two groups or more. All the groups except for the one who is playing must turn their back on the smart board until the current players  have completed the game and had earned their points. The same method is repeated for every group until everyone had had their turn. Whomever earns the highest point wins the match.

Alternatively, instead of turning their backs, the groups compete on who gets to guess the correct answer first. If a group is wrong, they either do not earn points or have points subtracted from them (tracked manually by the teacher), and they lose the opportunity to make a guess. If a group is right, they earn 10 points. The group that has the highest points at the end of the game wins.

Counting Objects Smartboard Game

counting_objectsA simple counting game where children are asked to count the number of animals that they can see on-screen, then color one square for each in the grid below. Aside from exercising their counting abilities, this introduces them to the basic concept of charts and grids.

The teacher can opt to let the entire class count together, or to separate them in teams, where each group fills up a grid of their own that their teacher had prepared in advance.  The students submit their grids, and the answers are checked against those entered in the game itself. The teacher can then tally up correct answers, either by individual pets, or by entire grids – possibly even a combination of both. There are at least two pictures, but the number of pets that appear are randomized, so the facilitator can run the game however times he would like. The team that earns the most points at the end wins.
