Give it a try!!

Go to website and download a set of images for your class. Cut and paste your class list into Plickers. Then give out a plicker shape to all students. Put some questions into plickers and use an phone or tablet to scan the class as they vote with their Plicker card by the position they hold it. The results show up live on screen. Students don’t need device just teacher.

App available on android and apple devices.

Students create key words linked to learning adding up to the most points.

Literacy and numeracy combined.

Could even create boards in their books of keywords and add up values.

Laminated sets of cards could be created for your teacher toolbox, alternatively project on the whiteboard. Once the students start, they don’t want to stop. 

Excellent resource for planning lessons and differentiated outcomes/objectives
