Gimkit

3 Stripes

Gimkit is a game show for the classroom that requires knowledge, collaboration, and strategy to win. If you like Kahoot! or Quizlet you will love Gimkit.  Gimkit allows students to review material, but also allows them to use strategy to buy powerups or give other students disadvantages during a live game.

Go to https://www.gimkit.com/login and sign up with your Google account.  Look for a kit that you would like to use in class or create your own.  You will start the game as you would a Kahoot! game so students will join the game with a code.  Most games have a 20-minute time limit, so students will play during this time, earning “money” for correct questions, and using powerups (which they have to buy) to give themselves advantages.
