Welcome to... A Game of X’s and O’s This activity is designed based on Mark E. Damon’s template.
the goal of this game is to answer questions correctly to form 3 X's or O's across, up and down, or diagonally.
What should be done first… Please separate the class into two teams. Play the game of paper-scissor- stone to decide which team goes first, and which symbol they’d like to choose (o or x).
The first team gets the first chance to pick out the square they want to answer. If the answer is correct, type their symbol on the square they choose and in the same time, they win another chance to answer another square. How to play
If they continue to win, they have the right to type their symbol on the square they choose ; if their answer to the square is wrong, another team wins that square without answering it, and has the chance to choose another square to answer. Get three of your symbols in a line, and your team gets ONE point (please type your score in the scoreboard ). The team that gets more lines means more scores. How to play
