Interactive French or Spanish Game Adaptable to Any Topic

I have seen several versions of the game “Bang”, “Zut”, “Caramba”, etc. on the Internet lately.  The basic premise is that points for answering a question correctly in the game are not guaranteed, but rather the player or players may get points, lose points, take points from another team or give points to another team.

  • 1 point
  • 2 points
  • 3 points
  • Lose two points (Bang, Zut, Caramba)
  • Give 2 points to another team
  • Take 1 point from another team.

You can pull out the box anytime and use it with review questions.  After the initial creation of the cards in the box there is almost no prep if the questions are asked orally by the teacher. I have also created a powerpoint version of the activity where teams choose a number and when clicked one of the possibilities above is revealed. I call this version “At Your Own Risk!”
