How to play… –Don’t play like Jeo_ _ _ _ y. –Class should be divided into several small groups. –Groups should use science journal (red slide notes), homework, and other available materials to assist you. –Groups can communicate quietly with each other but no sharing answers between groups. Practice quietly communicating right now? Practice Communication Question: Your group gets to order one pizza, and you can have two toppings, what does your group want?
Questions 1-20 = 5pts Each Final Category (Bonus) = 1pt Each Final Questions = 5 pt wager If you wager 5 on the last question and get it wrong you lose 5 pts. Wager 5 and get right you get 5 pts. Find the Owl = Secretly write “Owl” in the correct box worth 1pt. “I’ll be about this big.”
