Did you enjoy your Thanksgiving break? Did you eat too much turkey and pumpkin pie? Did you spend your time resting and watching football, or perusing Pinterest and EdTech blogs for cool new tools for your classroom???
I personally did a little of both 🙂
I’ve written before about the amazing review game tool that is Flippity. It uses Google Drive to simply create fantastic flashcards and matching review games. If you’re interested in reading more about this idea, please read my post on Flippity here.
As a way for my students to review for their Constitution test, I introduced Flippity, the flashcard creator. I was able to walk my students through creating their own flashcards with Flippity, and review their information with them in one class period. This is a testament to the accessibility of Flippity!
As I was walking my students through Flippity, I noticed a new feature…the ability to create a jeopardy style review game with Flippity! Awesome!
This is extremely simple, and mimics the process of creating Flippity flashcards. The Google Sheet saves in your Google Drive, allowing creators to access their review game any time…even if they forget the URL for their game…not that our students would forget 🙂
If you haven’t already, definitely check out Flippity. This tool is easy to use and beneficial for students…you can allow your students to become creators of content, and head down the path to self-directed learning!

Thanks for reading 🙂
Thanks. I'll check it out.
Have you ever used Quizlet? It's another easy-to-use flash card program with student games included. I use it all the time with my students, and they love it.

I ws just going to ask how this compares to Quizlet. Nice to know something new. My students use Quizlet beyond my classroom. It's the one thing they have thanked me for this year….
