What do you get when you combine flash cards with a dance party? Freeze It! Students dance to the music until it’s time to freeze, and then a question pops up for them to answer. The correct answer is revealed, and then it’s back to dancing! The questions are broken into categories based on grade level and academic concept, or you can import your own questions using the My Questions tool.
“We use Freeze It many times throughout the week – during our morning meetings with the emotions category, during reading (using our decoding strategy for each word that pops up) and during math and science, using our own custom questions.
It works for us because my kids LOVE to dance.” -Kelli O.
Freeze It Categories
Freeze It has 13 built-in categories, covering a mega-wide variety of subjects. Each category serves questions based on grade, so all the information will be relevant to your students.
Emotions, Colors, Geography, Letters, Reading, Time, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, Mixed Numbers, Improper Fractions, “Go, Slow, Whoa Foods.”
In addition to the built-in categories and questions, you can play Freeze It with custom question sets using My Questions. Any subject, any questions, anytime you want!
If your students love the dance-and-freeze game experience, try adding your own questions to make review fun, active, and memorable!
