Directions: Divide the class into Team A and Team B.
Then divide the teams into groups of 3-4 students.
The first group on Team A chooses a category and an
amount from slide 3. When the group agrees on an
appropriate “question” to ask in response to the
statement, one student asks the question. Other team
members can whisper an answer to the group, but if
the answer is heard by the teacher before the group is
ready to give an answer, the team loses their turn and
the play goes to Team B. Teams have 45 seconds to
formulate a correct “question” to the statement. If
correct, the team wins the dollar amount. If incorrect,
they receive no “money.” Play then goes to Team B.
Play continues until all category amounts have been
chosen. The team with the most money wins.
