Kids become real X's and O's in this simple review game.
game, tic-tac-toe, strategy, review
In this human tic-tac-toe game, students are separated into two teams, X's and O's. The teacher creates a tic-tac-toe board on the floor with masking tape. (The game can also be played outside on blacktop, with a chalk-line "board.") Each student receives one piece of paper on which he writes the letter that represents his team. The teams form single lines.
The human tic-tac-toe game can be applied to any subject matter, making it a fun way for any class to review before a quiz or test.
The team that wins the most rounds of tic-tac-toe may receive a special privilege, a bonus point, or small incentive.
