Minesweeper Plenary end of lesson game

Minesweeper Plenary end of lesson game

End your lessons with a bang ! Use this game as a plenary activity. This can be used for any subject and any year. E.g. MFL – translation of vocabulary Maths – answers to sums. History – dates, facts I personally have used it for pupils to translate vocabulary covered in a topic, scaffolding questions, starting with single words and then building up to more complex sentences. How to run the activity: Split the class into two groups or more. Teacher asks a question to each group. Teacher selects by hands up (or miniwhiteboards, or team discussion). Teacher selects a pupil to give the answer. If the answer is correct – pupil can choose a mine. If there’s a coin under the bomb - one point for your team If there’s an explosion under the bomb - lose one point If there’s a super bomb - the rubber duck of the evil clown - lose 2 points. The team with the most points wins!
