The Giver Chapter 15 Review Game


The Giver Review Game for Chapter 15 is the perfect addition to any novel unit!

According to research, using games when teaching increases student participation, comprehension, as well as fostering emotional and social learning.

Today’s 21st- century student needs to be fully engaged in learning to gain knowledge and then apply it in meaningful ways. Many teachers find that traditional comprehension questions are not engaging and often do not reinforce understanding. Both teacher and student often find answering the traditional chapter questions tedious and uninteresting.   

Help your students fully engage with Lois Lowry’s “The Giver” by incorporating these short, fun games into your unit.  

The review game for chapter 15 includes 6 quality and varied questions that reinforce students’ understanding.  Questions asked are based on:  

❒ Symbolism

❒ Irony

❒ Foreshadow

❒ Literary elements

❒ Plot 

❒ Characters

❒ Themes

❒ Quotes

❒ Everything you would ask in traditional comprehension questions

Students will answer questions to review the chapter in this fun color-pixel-style game. Everyone wins when they are learning and having fun!

The games created are interactive, engaging, and varied to maintain student interest. Each game includes a different theme with different challenges. Some games have game-show quiz-style questions, while others are like mini breakout rooms. Even better, the games require no preparation for the teacher. Other than an internet connection, nothing else is required! Merely share the game link with students, and they’re off to work independently. The games also inform students of the correct answer to all questions, so they will learn the necessary information before moving on to subsequent material.

Students can play these games as a group or individually. Create a class challenge to see who can complete the games in less time. The possibilities are endless! These games are also a great way to engage students in learning online.

The activities will take 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the game and the student’s abilities.

I love doing this activity at the beginning of my lessons to review the previous chapter, facilitating discussions and class activities.

The games can be played on any PC, laptop or tablet, Smartphone, Mac, or Chromebook. Anything that can access the internet can be used to access the games.

FREE LANGUAGE ARTS LESSON – “Macbeth Creative Writing Activities Fun FREEBIE”

by Brilliantly Lit
9th – 12th Grade

Students will explore Shakespeare’s Macbeth in a challenging, fun fashion with these 10 creative writing activities. The found poetry exercise might prove to be students’ favorite. I tell my students it is called dictatorship poetry! The activity allows them to absorb a tiny taste of what it might be like to live in a society, like Macbeth’s Scotland, where the ability to freely select words is restricted by fear. Making found poetry about the play within a time limit, arranging ONLY the words on the page provided, gives them this taste. The activities here are included in a resource of 70 Macbeth activities: Macbeth Games and Activities

Set up: you need to photocopy the dictatorship poetry page for everyone. A pair of scissors are required for each table.

I usually ask the students to snip and arrange the words on their desk top. If you supply paper and glue sticks, they can stick on their words and afterwards place their creations on the wall for all to admire.

You could show the examples (included in the resource) on your screen if any students are at all confused as to what the activity entails.

Process: the found poetry activity takes anywhere between 35-55 minutes.

The other writing games are just as much fun, but most only take about 10 minutes and are wonderful ways to finish a class.
