How to use this activity
Students play individually. Display the activity and call out a number. Give your students some time to respond to the card in the chat.
- The opinion cards are only there to generate a quick discussion, so no points are awarded.
- The knowledge cards award 2 points to any student who correctly answers.
- The puzzle cards award 3 points to the first student to answer correctly.
Play until all the cards have been used. The student with the most points at the end wins.
