2 J E OPA R D Y SIGNALS OF SPRING - ACES Animals in Curriculum-based Ecosystem Studies

3 Directions: Divide the class into two teams: Team A and Team B. Then divide the teams into groups of 3-4 students. The first group from Team A will choose a category and an amount from slide 3. After the group agrees on an appropriate “question” to ask in response to the statement, one student asks the question. Teams have 45 seconds to formulate their “question.” If correct, the team wins the dollar amount. If incorrect, they receive no “money.” The turn now goes to Team B. Play continues until the board is clear. The team with the most money wins.
