Swat Meet (all grades)

 

Author: Ron Seim, Columbus Tustin Middle Schoo, California

 

Subject: Any

 

Objective: To review given information before a test

 

Materials and Preparation: 2 fly swatters

 

Student Grouping: 2 teams

 

The Play: Three or four answers are written in boxes on a poster or on the whiteboard. (example: three or four Pharaohs)

One student is to be assigned as scorekeeper

 

Round 1:

  1. One player from each team comes to the front of the room and stands on opposites sides of the poster.

  2. Each player will begin with a flyswatter behind his or her back.

  3. The teacher will read a fact about one of the Pharaohs.

  4. The two students will attempt to be the first one to swat the correct box (with the Pharaoh's name in it).

  5. A player has only one chance to swat the right box with each question.

 

Round 2: Two new players, one from each side, replace the ones from round one. Continue game with new set or questions/facts.

 

Each new player is a new round. Each round consists of 1-4 questions. The game continues until the teacher runs out of facts.

 

Scoring: The first person who swats a box correctly receives one point for his or her team.

 

Examples: Teacher: " Which Pharaoh fathered nearly 100 children?"

 

  • The two players think as fast as they can and aim their flyswatters to hit the correct box.

  • The one who hit Rameses first receives one point for his or her team.

  • If they both miss Rameses, then the teacher will go on to the next question.

  • If one misses Rameses, then the other one has three seconds to hit the right box (Pharaoh).

  • The teacher then reads the next question.

 

Comments or Variations: A student may be assigned to be a referee. He or she will decide who hit the correct box first.
