Although most students were not born when this famous game show aired, they will catch on to this game quickly. This is also an easy game to set up.
1) Draw a Tic Tac Toe board on the blackboard
2) Use nine of your Hebrew School game pieces with magnetic backing and put one in each square. (Pictures of Jewish figures from the Torah, Jewish history or Hebrew letters, prayers, values..etc) I love it when the students yell out Ben Gurion for the block! This is a great example of how the students will learn and identify with game pieces
3) Split the class into two teams. Use birthdays, boys vs. girls, back row vs. the front, to split the class up.
Let's Play Jewish Hollywood Squares
Explain to the students that they are playing Tic Tac Toe. If they choose a square and get the review question correct then they get the square. However, if they get the answer wrong the other team gets the square. Alternate questions between team. Keep score of games won in the corner of the blackboard.
