Tic Tac Dough (Grades 4-12)


Subject: Any


Objective: Test review and teamwork


Materials and Preparation:


  1. Numbers 1-9 are assigned to all students.

  2. Each student writes four questions and answers on four separate slips of paper with the student’s “number” on the back. Therefore, all of the questions by the same student have the same number.

  3. The questions are turned in and put into nine stacks according to their number.


Student Grouping: 2 equal teams


The Play:


  1. The first student on Team A selects a number off the Tic Tac Dough board which is written on the chalkboard.

  2. The teacher selects and asks a question out of the same number stack that the student has selected.

  3. Anyone on Team A can give the person who selected the question the answer. However, the person who is “it” must say the answer.

  4. If his/her answer is correct, an “X” or “O” is put in the numbered square that he/she selected. Then it’s Team B’s turn.

  5. If the answer is incorrect, Team A loses their turn, and Team B is up.

  6. Once an “X” or “O” is placed in a particular square, questions from that numbered stack may not be used for the rest of that game.
