Welcome to Disney Crossy Road
Update 21.02.22: Added new file for Units 9-11.
Update 22.02.22: Balance Update - removed coins on some slides and repositioned coins for Minnie because she had the highest odds of winning if students always chose the position with the coin.
This is a game to review Units 8 and 9 from the New Horizon 1 (2021) textbook.
Students make teams. Each team chooses a Disney character from the available characters in the game. Students work together in groups to answer the questions. Students should take turns answering questions in their group so everyone gets a chance to speak by the end of the game. Students raise their hands when they have an answer. All teams will get a chance to answer. One correct answer per team per question.
HOW TO PLAY
Open the game in presentation mode so you can see notes on the side. (It's important for slides 12 and 13. You have to ask the students to find some characters by giving them 3 hints.)
Click PLAY then click on CLICK TO START.
Click Q to toggle showing or hiding the question. Click A to toggle showing or hiding the answer. Click the lightbulb to toggle showing or hiding the hint. Click the volume button to toggle volume on or off. Click right double arrow button to go to the next slide.
Click on the trees on the right side to trigger a timer (if needed). Tall trees are 1 minute. Short trees are 30s.
Click on the road in front of the characters to make them move to that location.
Click on the characters that are not assigned to a team to make them disappear.
Click the empty road on the right to send in the truck(s).
Students get 1 point for surviving, 2 points for surviving with a yellow coin, or 3 points for surviving with a red coin.
Point variation inclusion: -1 point for getting hit by a truck while not standing on a coin, -2 points for getting hit while standing on a yellow coin, -3 points for getting hit while standing on a red coin.
(I like to include the negative point variation after teams have accumulated some points. It makes them re-think the risk of always choosing the position with the coin.)
HOW TO EDIT
Click on the Home Ribbon. Click Arrange. Click Selection Panel. Click the "eye" button to show or hide the "hint panel", "answer panel", or "question panel".
Important note for editing. If you want to edit the pictures, right click on the picture and choose "Change Picture" then select from file or clipboard if you copied the image from the web or somewhere else. If you want to add new pictures, go to "edit" and "duplicate" then use previous step to change the picture. Don't just paste in new pictures or else they won't be grouped with the panel and will be on top of everything else.
Important: Custom fonts are used. You must download them to view the file properly.
Unzip files and then double click to install. You need to quit/close PowerPoint before installing.
Shoutout to Robert. I learned how to make games by looking at yours and reverse engineering them. Cheers.
More fun games coming soon!
