Around the World

To play a game of "Around the World" is a fun and simple activity, and is especially good for exam reviews and large groups.


  • Before the session, the SI leader should make up a number of questions with simple answers (one‐word or a short phrase).
  • The fun begins when you have two students stand up next to each other and ask a question; the first person to answer correctly moves on to the next student to try another question against a new opponent, while the other sits back down.
  • To win the game, a student must travel "Around the World," or win against every other student in the classroom.
  • If no one succeeds in going completely "Around the World," the winner is whoever went around the furthest from their original seat.
