Activity Description

In this activity, students study a set of flashcards on SAT vocabulary and then compete in a lively game of Quizlet Live online. Teams compete against each other and must work together in order to win. There are currently over 181 million study sets already created on numerous other topics.

  2. Familiarize yourself with the site.
  3. Select the study set you want to use or you can create your own.
  4. Prepare a lesson to introduce the material.
  5. Survey the class to determine the number of devices available.
  6. Check your classroom network to be sure the site is not blocked.

  2. Present your lesson.
  3. Demonstrate the Website and the different ways students can study the material.

  8. Once the teams are assembled the game can begin. Each team member receives possible answers; however, only one member has the correct answer. The team must figure out who has the correct answer and select it. The team that answer all questions correct wins and the name of the winning team is displayed on every phone.

Teacher Tips

Play the game more than once. You can keep the same teams. Make sure the Quizlet card set is related to the instructional goal or outcome of the day.
