“Can I Play This At Home?” is a fun World Cup activity where students can “play” a soccer game by answering questions. You can use questions that the game has already prepared, or you can create your own for any subject. Greg Pallis was nice enough to let me know about it. He writes, “My students were pretty obsessed with it when I used it with them (they asked
to stay in after school to play it more), so I’d like to spread the love and see if other teachers get the same response.” Thanks, Greg!
