How to play the game
- Ask a question on the lesson. If a child answers correctly, they receive points for their team (say 50) and then they choose a number card, which is removed to reveal the item beneath.
- Depending on which underwater item is shown, bonuses are added to the team’s score. No bonus is added if rubbish is found.
- Suggested bonuses are in the printout and you might like to cut out and laminate that sheet as a permanent reminder to you, and for all to see as they play the review game.
- The winner is the team with the most points after all the items have been revealed, or when time is up.
Full instructions, visuals and a suggested list of bonuses are included in the free download, which is a single PDF.
