Lesson #1601. Who Wants to Be a Candyaire?

Posted by Nancy Ritchie, Gr 5 Roselawn Elementary School, Chetek, WI
Social Studies, level: Elementary; Materials Required: candy, chalkboard, eraser
Activity Time: 45 minutes; Concepts Taught: review social studies and geography

This follows the same concept of "Who Wants to Be A Millionaire." Have each students put their name on a slip of paper. Put all the slips into a basket and draw one. That students comes up front and sits in the "hot seat." Give them social studies and geography questions that you have studied and write 4 choices on the board. They choose one. If they get it right, they receive a piece of candy, (I usually use chocolate kisses!), they can proceed for 4 more turns, each one offering additional pieces of candy. If they answer a questions wrong, they have to give all the candy back but one piece....(they ARE kids after all!). I usually allow 2 lifelines; ask the audience or 50/50. They absolutely love it, and it's a great way to review skills!
