Sushi Scramble Review Game

A game to review textbook content, with a theme of a kaitenzushi restaurant. There's a blank template alongside some completed yearly review versions.

Estimated time: 30 - 50 mins (depending on question difficulty and the speed that students answer)

Quiz I made a while back during a telework period but just haven't gotten around to uploading yet.
I find it works a little better with junior high school classes, as they seem to enjoy the rather bizarre choice of game theme.

- Depends on question difficulty and the students level. I find that I can pretty easily fill a full lesson with it though.

How to play:
- Split students into groups and keep track of their scores on the blackboard. I find the game works best if you give all teams a few points from the very start (3 or 5 points).
- Decide the turn order of the teams (I go with Rock, Paper, Scissors) and proceed through the quiz.
- Teams choose a question from the main board (28 questions in total) and answer. I tend to give a time limit of 1 minute per question using a timer in the classroom (although I'm usually a bit lenient). If a team cannot answer I will allow other teams to "steal" the question which helps to ensure that other groups are actively engaged and working out the other teams' questions.
- Add to the team's score or carry out action determined by the item of sushi.
- At the end, click the little receipt in the bottom right to go to an end of game screen.

There's a blank template for you to fill out for whatever grade or unit you wish.
I've also included a finished 5th grade, 6th grade, JHS 1st grade and JHS 2nd grade quiz based on content covered in the Here We Go series of textbooks.

Other than that I think it's fairly self-explanatory. If you have any questions feel free to ask. Or if you find any issues let me know so I can fix them.

Hope that you find it useful!

Edit: As mentioned below in the comments don't hit the escape button or close the presentation midway through otherwise the order page (question selecting screen) will reset and you'll likely have groups choosing questions that have already been answered.

      This is amazing!!

      Update: This game went over great with my classes! Just a word of caution to others: don't hit the ESC button or close out of the PPT midway through. As a reflex I did it once or twice and it reset the order button screen :'-) But definitely a Me thing and not a problem with this activity. It's excellent!

    14. Bonjure289 March 20, 2023

      @sbrshteacher hahaha I did the same thing actually lol But yeah was my bad.

    15. JoshJ March 20, 2023

      Ah sorry, probably should've put a warning in the description about not backing out of the presentation or it will reset!
      Glad to hear it went well other than that though!

      Great work! Thanks for making it. The students would love this.

      I think my students will love this activity. Can I insert picture/s on the boxes? Thanks

    18. JoshJ March 28, 2023

      Yeah you can, just paste your image on top the box and then give it an exit animation. Open the "animation pane" and in the list drag the exit animation of your picture up to just below the exit animation of the box (sorry not very clearly labelled!). Finally in your new pictures animation settings go to "timings" and change the start to "with previous". Hope this helps!

      Also I'm going to re-upload the files because I've made some changes to correct errors (template is fine as is though)
