Game: Más o Menos

I’ve enjoyed a nice hiatus and am now happy to be back with some great new ideas, games and songs.

Here’s a new game, Más o Menos, I adapted from an activity from this blog. This is a great review / practice game, and can even be easily done with just a few minutes left in class.

Here’s what you need:

  1. Image of numbered circles (I used this)
  2. Your own colored answer key (I made several different ones, so the kids couldn’t cheat)
  3. A list of questions you want to ask

Here’s how you play: 

  1. Divide the class into groups of 2-4 people.
  2. Project the numbered circles.

  3. Give each group a dry erase board.
  4. Ask the entire class a question. Each group discusses and writes their answer on the board.
    • If correct: They get to pick a number from the board. They then get whatever that question is worth (either +1 or -1) depending on what your answer key says.

      Here’s my answer key. You can see that half of the circles are green (+1) and half are yellow (-1). So if a group chooses #44, they get +1 point. If a group chooses #53, they get -1 point.

       

    • As each group chooses numbers, you might want to cross them off on the board so that another group doesn’t choose that number.

That’s it! This game can easily be whipped up in a few minutes. All you need to do is think of what questions to ask.

Enjoy!
