Fans 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!

Join Sesame Street’s Grover and Emma as they travel around the world looking for dinosaur fossils.
The game starts with a simple video introduction about dinosaurs, fossils, and archeology. Kids are then taught how fossils are excavated by allowing them to “use” the appropriate tools. Once the fossils are revealed, children are then presented with a puzzle where they’re asked to assemble the skeleton together, as well as match the assembled fossils to the picture of its corresponding dinosaur. Afterwards, another short video is then played, where an animated information about the dinosaur is provided.

This smartboard game is a bit of a different activity. It allows you to see how many slaves you have “working” for you at the moment. Both your students and you as a teacher will find it fascinating. The slavery footprint is based on what products you have in your household and what you regularly buy.
