Stop The Broom! Halloween Themed Interactive PowerPoint Team Game
Put pupils into teams of 2-4
Pupils take turns in choosing a picture. Click on the picture. Behind each picture is a letter. The letter will magically disappear so that pupils know the choices left.
Pupils think of one item to go in each category beginning with that letter. A sheet for recording words is provided.
Teams have 60 seconds to complete task. There is a timer on the slide. The witch will gradually disappear and the end of the 60 seconds culminates in a witch’s cackle. 'Happy' Halloween music plays in the background whilst pupils complete task.
To return to the image page, click on letter on the top right-hand corner of each slide.
If a team finishes before the 60 seconds, they shout “Stop the Broom!” Click on the slide to activate the witch’s cackle.
Teams score 1 point if they have an appropriate item in the category. They get 2 points if no other team has that word.
The length of time pupils have can be reduced or extended by altering the timing of the witch image.
