Teaching


As an incentive game, students play to save a fish. Each time they answer a question or finish a class task, they get to move the fish. To keep the game exciting, you can occasionally move the shark.

Many kids are eager to tap the board, so I often use this as a variation of rock-paper-scissors. Two students play, and the winner is chosen.
