This is a ten minute game which I created as a revision quiz for A-Level students revising semi-conservative DNA replication, although the board can be used for any biology topic, you just need to set the questions!
You can either access the catchphrase board online at: http://www.grefintec.co.uk/catchphraseforbiology/story.html (copy and paste url to address bar)
Or you can now download it for offline use from http://www.grefintec.co.uk/downloadslides.html (instruction on the site)
Ask the first question to the class. The pupil who gets the question right, gets to choose a square to remove.
This continues until either the questions are completed or the catchphrase is guessed.
The winner is the person who can guess the biological catchphrase from the picture
Just in case you can't work it out - the catchphrase is 'Survival of the fittest'
Tip: Ask a pupil to be the game facilitator - enabling you to present the quiz.
