To review our geometry vocabulary, I created a quiz on Kahoot! This was on a list of review suggestions from our curriculum director. I made a 10-question review and did it with my students today, and they LOVED it! As soon as we finished, they asked about doing it again! Here's what it involves:
First, you sign up for a FREE account and make a multiple choice quiz (there are other choices of things that you can create, but I only tried the quiz). Go to GetKahoot.com. Creating a quiz literally took me minutes since I was not adding any pictures, links, or videos. The quiz is saved in your account, but you can email a link to yourself or others.
Kahoot can be used with laptops, tablets, or smartphones. Our third graders have laptops, so they opened Safari and went to kahoot.it
|Once everyone has submitted answers, the program will show the correct answer and a graph of how many students chose each one.|
|The students are given immediate feedback for their answer.|
|The top 5 students are then displayed on your SmartBoard.|
There are many other features on Kahoot that I have not explored yet, but I know that you can download your students' scores. There is also a link to public Kahoots that other teachers have created.
My students and I are enjoying this new program. Have fun Kahooting!
I am still very new with this tool, but I am already hooked. I can't wait to see what else it can do. I have used our SmartResponse/Senteo clickers before and was always frustrated with this process. This seemed easy-peasy compared to that.
Happy Kahooting! Pin It
