Whole class games

People like to play Jeopardy like games for whole class review and/or discussions. I recall playing a couple of games of around the world too... What whole class games do you use and how do you use them to extend/refine students' learning?

Ms. McGuire

One whole class game that I use to refresh students on what a multiple is is called "Buzz" the students get in a circle and they start counting one at a time around the circle and then ever a multiple of 3 happens the student says Buzz instead the the direction of the rotation reverses. Also, anytime 3 is in the number (ie 13) again Buzz is said and the rotation reverses again. This is great because students have fun and don't realize they are learning.
