Back it Up

This is a ppt zoom game.


  1. Powerpoint/slideshow Capabilities

How to Play:

There are several variations. This is how we play: On a slide show, have a series of objects. Each object will have 4 different zoom perspectives. 1.) Very close 2.) close 3.) not so close 4.) whole object in view. We split our group up into two teams. We'll show a series of four slides for each object. Very close slide, close slide, not so close slide, and whole object in view slide. If a team guesses correctly on the first slide - they get 4 points and you go on to the next object. If a team guesses wrongly on the first slide, they get minus 4 points and the other team can guess if they want - then you go on to the next slide (note: You only move to the next object when a team guesses correctly). If you move on to the next slide (close view) then it's only worth 3 points. If someone guesses wrongly, then their team gets negative 3 points. The team is only allowed to guess once per slide. First team that raises their hand can guess first. Teams can pass and not say anything at all during a slide.

I hope this makes sense. Another variation is to use students' facebook profile pictures. Some in the past have called this "facebook zoom."
