I searched on the internet for vocabulary games and combined a few ideas to create this game.
you will need a stack of scrap paper, sheet of paper for answers, information you want to review – this can be vocabulary words, Study Guide Questions, Summary Module Questions, etc.
Write the question number and the question on one sheet of scrap paper. Be sure to write the answer on your answer sheet. You will want twice the number of snowballs as students. After all questions have been written on the scrap paper, crumple up the papers and throw them into the middle of the room.
Station students an equal distance away from the snowballs.
Students are to get a snowball, return to their seat, open the paper, write the answer by the question number on their paper, crumple the paper back up and toss the snowball back to the middle of the room. Then they can leave their seat to repeat the process. The game continues until one student says they have gotten all the answers.
At the end of play, everyone returns to their seat and we check the answers. The student with the most correct answers (this is not usually the student who is done first) gets a prize.
BE VIGILANT: As the game continues, they will open the snowballs in the center of the room to keep from getting a repeat question — the repeating questions are a good equalizer for the students who are not great a memorization.
I have played the game allowing students to use their book and not allowing them to use their books — using the book helps with new concepts while using their memory helps with exam review.
