  • Put the flashcards in a box. Divide your class into two teams.
  • For each round of the game, have one student from each team come to the front of the room.
  • He / she draws a card from the box, reads a question, then answers it.
  • Each correct answer gains one point.
  • The team with the highest score is the winner.
