  • Fifteen-to-One
    Adapted from a popular British quiz show. Give each student three lives. Ask the first student a question. If they answer incorrectly they lose a life. If they answer correctly they get a point. Also, if they answer correctly they may decide to answer another question, or nominate another student. If they nominate, the nominated student has to answer a question. When a student loses all three lives they are out of the game. If a student loses their three lives, they are out. Game continues until there is only one student left. A fun way to brighten up any learning process.

    As well as general questions, students can be given definitions and asked to give the word, students can be given words and asked to define them, or students can be asked to spell words, and so on.
