Object of the Game: This game is based of a game called Treasure Hunt by Professor Puzzle. This remote version is a great way to build in some kinesthetic movement into your remote lesson as well as practice parts of speech. You can play as a whole group class in Zoom, Google Meet, or other video-conferencing platform.
Whole Class Game Play:
Have each team or individual create a story using all of the nouns and adjectives used in the game. They can share their story creation in written form or share as a video using a digital tool such as Flipgrid.
For all my culinary friends, you can do this with ingredients too! Create a wheel of food describing adjectives such as, sweet, crunchy, sour, etc and shout out a food category (vegetable, protein, etc). Students have to find an ingredient that fits that description. If you are concerned that students may not all have equal access to ingredients, you could do a similar activity in Google Slides. Create a collaborative slide deck with one slide for each student. Each student claims a slide and puts their name on it. When you spin the wheel they have to bring in a picture to their slide that matches the description. Select "grid" view so you can see which pictures came in within the minute. Students can erase their picture after each round.
I would love to hear other variations that you come up with for this game as well as pics of you playing with your class! Please share out on social media and tag me @tishrich on Twitter and @makelearningmagical on Instagram. Make sure to include #MLmagical!
