If you’re looking for a jump-off point for student response through writing or speaking, let them view one of these short videos and then reflect using Google forms, Padlet, Flipgrid, or any other quick-response tool.
A nice alternative to Kahoot! is Quizizz. They recently announced that once students download the app, they can access quizzes through Google Classroom – which seems like a nice feature.

- Open https://join.quizizz.com in your browser
- Enter the 6-digit game code 343997 , and click “Proceed”
- Now enter your name and click “Join Game!”
- You will get an avatar, and then see a “Start Game” button. Click it to begin!
- Will you win a prize? WHO KNOWS?????
