Campbellsville Middle School sixth- and eighth-graders recently joined together to play a review game to help them prepare for state standardized testing.
The students underwent testing the week of May 8.
To help prepare for the reading portion of the exam, students in Paige Cook’s and Lisa Kearney’s language classes played a review game called Zap!
In the game, students form teams and are given questions.
If a team answers the question correctly, members choose a card from a game board. The card might say to add points to the team’s score or subtract them.
Some cards also allow students to take all of another team’s points and to swap points with another team.
The goal of the game is to help students review language terms and have fun, too.
