W4-9 Modified Musical Chairs
Have 8 chairs labeled with the following tags: History Timeline, History, Latin, Science, English, Math, Geography, and Free Space. Put all of the flashcards that need to be reviewed in a brown paper bag. Have students walk around the chairs while playing the Classical Music For Dummies CD (which we will be using next quarter). When the music stops, the students sit in the chairs. Draw out a flashcard and the student in the corresponding chair attempts to answer the question. If the student answers correctly, he/she remains in the game. If the student does not answer correctly, he/she stands next to the wall. The game continues until only one student is remaining. If all of the flashcards have not been reviewed by the time the game is over, play again.
