The Giver Game Bundle for Chapter Review


The Giver Game Bundle – A 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.  

Each game includes quality questions that check the student’s understanding and are varied to include:  

❒ Important vocabulary and terms

❒ Symbolism

❒ Irony

❒ Foreshadow

❒ Literary elements

❒ Plot 

❒ Characters

❒ Themes

❒ Quotes

❒ Everything you would ask in traditional comprehension questions

The breakout rooms include clues and answer keys for the teacher. The teacher can give students hints if they struggle in their quests.

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 20 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 bundle includes  23 games and 320 questions in total!

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 MISC. LESSON – “Friendship Video: Bullies Can Change”

by Rainbow City Learning
3rd – 6th Grade

This sweet friendship video can be shown to your students, helping them to see a brighter path to true friendship!

What she had to say blew us away! This awesome girl believes that bullies can change – everyone has the ability to turn negative attitudes into light. And these fourth graders believe we should always look for the best in our friends to begin with. The best social attitudes ever from our students to yours!

This song was picked out by my student as a favorite. She was so taken with the lyrics and music, she insisted on teaching it to her classmates! I just happened to have my camera ready to capture the enthusiasm. We hope our little video inspires your own students to become the best friends they could ever be!
