Choosing Appropriate Games
The great thing about interactive games is that they can be tailored to any age group or skill level, so you’re sure to find something your students will love.
When picking out a game, think about what type of energy you want your students to have. Are you looking to encourage participation? Do you want them to stay active and engaged? Or do you want something more relaxed? Once you’ve figured out the tone, it should be easy to pick out a game that will fit right in with your assembly.
Make sure that the game is appropriate for the size of your group. If there are too many players for one game, consider splitting them up into smaller teams or playing multiple rounds. That way everyone can get into the spirit of friendly competition and have tons of fun!
Keeping Everyone Engaged
When it comes to interactive games for school assemblies, keeping everyone engaged is key. To do this, there are a few tips and tricks you can use.
First, make sure the rules are clear and concise so that everyone understands how to play. You can also add an element of competition to each game by offering prizes or rewards for the winners. This will encourage students to stay focused and have fun with the game!
It’s important to establish a few ground rules about how the students should interact with each other — no pushing or shoving! Encourage everyone to work together and support each other as they take on their challenges — after all, teamwork makes the dream work!
Create a Friendly Atmosphere
Another way to keep everyone involved is by creating a friendly atmosphere. Make sure everyone feels comfortable participating and offer lots of encouragement. Keep your energy up throughout the game and show your enthusiasm – that way, your students will be more likely to stay focused too!
