This game is compatible with Google Slides, Open Office, Libre Office, or other programs that are not PowerPoint 2016 or later. If you are using Keynote or an older version of PPT, I recommend testing the game before you purchase (directions below).
Want to give it a try? ! If the Lunar New Year game works on your computer, then the Library Orientation Trivia Game will also work.
- Recommended for: Grades 3-6
- Format: PPT and PDF (PowerPoint should be updated to 2016 or later)
- Editable: YES, everything except the photos and artwork is editable
- Number of slides: 52 PPT slides + 1 page PDF game play instructions
- This game is NOT compatible with Google Slides. The game board dollar amounts do not disappear in Google. This is important to game play.
- Open source software (OpenOffice, LibreOffice, etc) – Users have reported problems with the trigger animations when using this game with open source software. That means the game board dollar amounts might not click, might not go to the right slide, or might not disappear. I do not recommend using open source software for this game.
- Keynote seems to work for many users, but please test it with the demo link above to make sure.
- For best results, your PowerPoint version should be at least 2016 or later. Earlier versions of PPT do not support the feature that allows game board dollar amounts to disappear.
- Not sure your version of PPT? You can test the game (link above). If your dollar amounts disappear when you return to the game board, then your PowerPoint version is compatible with this game.
- Low prep! Many of my Trivia Games are ready-to-go out of the box, but this one requires some customization.
- The entire category “Our Library” needs your library information. I’ve included sample text (which you are welcome to use if it works for you), but you will need to change the information to suit your library.
- Sample questions for this category are: What is your librarian’s name? How long do you get to keep the books you checked out? Where is the closest bathroom? How many (shelves, books, tables, stuffed animals – you decide) are in the library? How often does this class have library time?
- Some prior knowledge of library skills is helpful, but nearly all questions are multiple choice. Guessing is also encouraged!
- Every answer slide includes additional information about the question. This game is instructional and includes lots of library vocabulary and terms.
- Includes 25 questions, all questions except one are multiple choice
- When you click on the dollar amounts on the game board, they disappear when you return to the board. This ensures students do not pick a question that has already been asked.
- Editable in PowerPoint.
