1 Middle School Lesson 2 Activity 3 – The Guessing Game The purpose of this PowerPoint is to demonstrate the effective way of teaching The Guessing Game. There have been demonstrations of this activity that fall short of its intent and by following this procedure you will experience greater success in the classroom. The objective of this activity is to demonstrate that taking risks may not only affect the person making the decision but those around them as well. 1

Question 3: Use of marijuana by 8 th grade students has increased in the last ten years? Answer: False Yellow, Blue and Green team had correct answer Red team had incorrect answer. Even though they risked and lost all of their points they will still continue in the game and will choose how many points to risk. They may risk up to, but no more than 50. Score keeper totals the scores 17

Question 4: What percent of 8 th grade students used alcohol in the last thirty days Answer: 16% Blue, Yellow, Green teams had incorrect answer Red has the correct answer Score keeper totals the scores. (If Red at zero had continued to loose points they would continue with a negative total score. All teams continue to play, even with a negative score. Correct answers would add points to a negative score, possibly increasing their score to the positive.) 22

23 Yellow Blue Red Green (78%) -20 (28%) +10 (78%) +30 (78%) (39%) +20 (7%) +20 (7%) -30 (20%) (F) +10 (F) -80 (T) +10 (F) (45%) -20 (45%) +30 (16%) -20 (45%) Guessing Game 23

24 Continue until all students have been called upon to answer a question. Based on this example of the Guessing Game the DARE Instructor will ask a minimum of six of the questions so all students have a chance to answer and risk points for their team. Depending on the amount of time the instructor has in the classroom will determine how many questions they have time to ask. Instructor must complete all questions by using the PowerPoint, or giving the correct answer. Remember this activity is used to illustrate the concept of risk and how one person may take a risk that can effect others (consequences). 24
