Minute to Win It (Powerpoint and instructions)
« on: October 15, 2012, 05:15:28 PM »
I created this for a class that I teach on Saturday mornings.  The kids loved it!

The Powerpoint has embedded YouTube links, but if that doesn't work for you, the original links are also in the PPT comments section for each slide.

I'm also attaching instructions for each 'blueprint' along with the materials that are required.

My ideas were based off of the game show on NBC and I used their website for the blueprints.

I think this would work well for a camp or for after school classes.

Not sure if it matters to you, but if you want. you can go to keepvid.com and download each of those vids, and then place them in the PPT. That way you wont need an internet connection.

looked interesting

Thanks so much for the idea. I knew what to do with the children in 3rd and 4th grade weeks ago.   I was at a lost what to do with the 5th and 6th grade students for Winter Camp.  I can also do this stuff for my After School Classes.

just wondering if there is sound for the clips or if it is my computer.

Hmm...yes, there should be sound on all of the Youtube clips.  I've tried it on a few computers.

Maybe try what Wintermute mentioned and download them individually?

I am doing this game/activity to blow off some steam at the end of the semester.


I've reworked the PPT to have the videos embedded- I am working on a Powerpoint 2010 machine, but 2007 should have no problems playing the file either.


Please ensure your computer can play .mp4 files in Windows Media Player (install K-Lite Codec Pack or CCCP (yellow button)) for the videos to play inside Powerpoint.


I've also removed the feather game (Keep It Up) and replaced it with "Defying Gravity" ... instead of 2 feathers with their breath, it is 3 balloons with their body- no holding/resting.


Enjoy!

@ trisha.sue : Thanks for the great game! I'm going to use it for my winter camp!

@ C. Dennis : I like your modifications! However, even with the codec program installed the .mp4s just play as audio files (not video). Did you embed video files, or are they supposed to be just audio?

If they are supposed to be video, is there any chance you'll upload the video files so I can just link the files. I often have to teach in other classrooms, and I don't want to install software in other classrooms if it's not necessary.
Cheers!

Here's the version C.Denis made with .wmv files, instead of .mp4s. No codecs needed. ;)

After running this at a middle school, playing 2vs2 (4 teams total), here is a handy-dandy list of how much of what your need for the revised version:
  • 1 Package penne pasta (should last a week of classes)
  • 1 Package spaghetti (should last a week of classes)
  • ~200 Candies (40x 5 colors) (I put mine in 4 bags, so I don't waste class time re-mixing-up candy)
  • 4 Baggies/containers for dumping out the candies to be sorted.
  • 10 Cups that will hold 10 candies
  • 10 Post-Its with each color written on it (to label the candy cups)
  • ~20 cookies per class that plays (no class of mine has lost more than 2 cookies)
  • 6 Balloons (if they never pop, could last all week...)
  • 2 Cereal boxes (to use for puzzles)
  • 1 Deck of cards
  • 6 Clothes pins/'클립' in the stationery section
  • ~200 rubber bands (should last all week)
  • 1 Tape measure (to measure the foul line for Sharp Shooter)

I just love this game and can't wait to have a games day during Winter camp with it.

Was just browsing the "blueprint" document in the original post, and I'm confused about the game "Face the cookie." What exactly is meant to happen?

Is the student meant to slide the cookie from their forehead into their mouth without dropping it on the floor, or using their hands?

This is a pretty cool game for winter camp. Thank you OP and the rest who worked on it. Here is the same game, different blueprints, hopefully it works, it is my first time embedding vids in a .ppt if not I am sure someone can run with it.

This game looks fantastic for my Middle School camp, but I need to ask a few questions if that's OK!

How is the game organised? Does each team get to try once at each game? Who chooses which game happens first and is the winning team the one who completes the most challenges?

Sorry if these sound like stupid questions, I've not seen the show!  :-[

I had about 30 kids and split them in to 5 teams... each team picked one person at a time to come to the front. Then they rock paper scissored to see who would choose the game. Whoever passes the challenge gets one point for their team and whichever team has the mist points wins.

Does anyone know when Minute to Win It airs? I have olleh TV, and I caught it one time on channel 41 but I completely forgot when it was. My students want to know.

I can't find many episodes online either, only clips.

@Harry Yeong
Thanks for the new blueprints!
Did you make it on a MAC? For some reason I couldn't open it on my PC.

For any other PC users or those who have trouble opening it, here are the new blueprints in the format created by Trisha Sue(?).
