GimKit Review Game

0 comments

Gimkit allows you to upload pre-existing Quizlet sets or you can create your own 'Kit.' The format is very similar to Kahoot but it's not timed and students can go through the questions at their own pace. Students basically earn fake money for correct responses to buy power-ups or pies to slow down their opponents. The coolest part, you get a detailed breakdown at the end of the game showing you what questions/topics you can move on from and which ones need further instruction. A lot of people use this for vocabulary, but I've incorporated food labels and diagrams so it can be geared towards our health education topics. I'll also set it up so that the students will play for 8-10 minutes and if they work through the entire kit, it will continue to loop so they can see the same questions again.

    I saw this Pinterest Board Template by Cynthia Nixon and immediately thought that it could be put to good use in a Health Classroom. Click here: bit.ly/2KcWIr4 to preview the template. Click the blue "Use Template" button to get your own copy. You can share this template with your students via Google Classroom or a QR code using the same link as I've included above. I'm thinking that pretty much any Health topic could be assigned for use with this template and that makes it SO useful.

    In order to help make the standards and performance indicators a bit more accessible and useful to teachers, we have added the National Health Standards Locator here: https://www.cbhpe.org/national-health-standards-locator With the Locator, you can search by search term, grade level band(s) and standard. Search results are downloadable as a .csv file by clicking the “3 dots” menu in the upper right corner. A great way to use the Locator is to search for a particular term and choose, for example grades K-2 and 3-5. This allows you to see the learning progression and can inform your teaching.
