'Class win or fail' revision game. Template suitable for everything!. Bundle of pre-made ones

Hi This is a creative and engaging game. There are 15 timed questions - they are linked to the main slide. The purpose - if the class get 12 or more correct, then win the reward. If they get less than 12, they get the punishment! Be careful - each question has a countdown timer. This is adaptable to any subject, for any age by simply over-typing the questions. This is the easiest and most engaging way to have a revision quiz! NOTE: The original file - ie the template - was created by my wife - also an author on TES under the name 'boosteration'. It is a 'TES PICKS' - please see link below https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/-class-win-or-fail-revision-game-suitable-for-everything-11062844 THIS BUNDLE: has 7 pre-prepared games for you - see the file names for the topics
