Fly Swatter

Fly Swatter is a way to review material that is very active and it is not for all students and all classes. But if you have a class that will not hit each other with the fly swatters then it is great fun and an excellent means of assessment.


2 fly swatters
List of questions for review
Answer cards


1. Tape a starting line on the floor.

2. Put answers on white board. Space them out in random order.

3. Divide the class into two teams. Be sure that students are sitting in the order you want them to answer.

4. Have one player from each team stand on the starting line.

5. Call out a question.

6. The first player to swat the correct answer wins a point for their team.

7. If the player swats the incorrect answer, the other student on the line gets a free swat to answer the question.

8. If both students miss the question the teacher gives the answer and then repeats this question in a later round.

9. The team with the most points wins.

Thank you for sharing this website. Its great to see that other educators understand the importance of having rules and procedures to create positive and effective learning environments within the classroom. This will be another great source of idea my teachers can add to their classroom management plan.
