Hey guys, thanks for all the likes! I fixed some issues with the powerpoints (weird fonts and incorrect Japanese haha), and also increased the number of minigames. Also, a fun way I like to run the game is save question 40 (drawing challenge) for last! It's a good way to wrap up game play if you're running out of time. Enjoy!
Happy spooky month, everyone! This is a simple, powerpoint based quiz game with a Halloween theme! The main questions are all general English review, but some of the bonus questions involve Halloween trivia.
Connect your computer/tablet to your classroom display, mark out a place on the board to keep track of points
HOW TO PLAY:
Divide students into groups of 5-6 and have them draw straws to determine play order
Teams take turns choosing a number from the home screen. They then have 30 seconds to answer the question. If they get the question right, they earn points. HOWEVER--some questions lead to a "trick or treat" option. On this screen the students can decide if they want a "treat" (2 points) or a "trick" (challenge question or minigame worth 4+ points).
There are roughly 10 trick or treat options hidden throughout the game. Half of these lead to challenge questions, which are all multiple choice Halloween trivia. The other half lead to minigames which are as follows:
- Zombie Attack: all teams return to zero
- Vampire Battle: play janken with another team, winner steals 3 points
- Candy Bag: +6 points
- Click the number on the home screen to take you to the corresponding question
- After students have answered, click anywhere to reveal the right answer
- Click the ? icon to reveal the points OR trick or treat
- In the case of trick or treat: click the candy icon to reveal the points, or the ghost icon to reveal the challenge question
- Click the home icon to return to the home screen.
- I've attached three versions for the three grade levels. The questions are all content covered in the first 1-5 units of the Here We Go! textbooks. A few of the questions are also specifically about the ALT/JTE so of course feel free to alter anything you like!

Thank you very much
Thank you so much! This saved me a lot of time.
This is so fun! I don't know if I have 40min., but I'll make it happen! xD Thanks for putting in so much effort!!
This is amazing work! Thank you so much!
I spent so many hours looking for a simple yet so fun game for halloween lesson thanks so much.
Appreciate this so much! Thank you!!
I like it a lot! Thank you for your effort and time into creating this very nice PP for Halloween!
This is really great! Just an idea, it would be cool if the numbers on the board were houses on a street. That way it would simulate trick or treating.
Thank you very much for this
This has done some heavy lifting for my classes this week! Thanks for creating a great quiz!
These were excellent! I found the game is faster and more exciting when any of the teams can 'buzz in' by raising their hand first i.e. not just turn-by-turn as described in Step 2 of HOW TO PLAY. Then, the team that answered correctly also chooses the next number from the home screen to advance the game.
waooo! This is super suitable and handy.
Great game! I wanted to jump off of Keith's note and share the website multibuzz.app - if your school server allows it, you can use this website for students to "buzz in" when they know the answer!
Thank you so much! this is a life saver
My 3年s absolutely loved this game! Thank you so much for sharing this!! Happy Halloween!!
thanks a lot
