The newest obsession of my high school students is a Facebook Game or App called Trivia Crack. It is basically Trivial Pursuit, but more in the style of “Words with Friends,” where you virtually play your friends in trivia. Here is the official website with directions in the language of your choice.
You win “crowns” in each category for answering questions correct and once you miss a question, you have to wait for the other person to play their turn. There is a also a challenge option that my uber competitive classes love.
Each week my students complete 3 “points” worth of choice “Real World” homework. This week I had a couple students ask if they could use playing Trivia Crack in Spanish. Two students played each other for 30 minutes and submitted the screenshots below as a part of their weekly report for their 3 points. They had a ton of fun, learned a lot of new words, and now many more students are planning on using this option next week.
