This assignment was done in my AP Lit class, but it works just as well in any class that works with multiple choice reading passage questions (AP Lang, English classes with standardized state tests, SAT/ACT prep, etc.)
Students picked names for their horses and we were off to the races!
TLDR Rules: Students are put into groups and work together to get multiple choice questions correct. each correct answer moves their horse up a slot. Each wrong answer moves the teacher's horse up a slot (limit three slots per question). First to arrive at the finish line gets prizes.
More details are provided on the presentation slides I set up. You are welcomed to copy it for yourself - no charge!
I would love to know any tweaks you make to make this a better experience for your students!
