Here is another great product from Educational Insights. It is called Batter Up ($24.99) and is a game for the entire classroom or a group of children. It hangs on the wall and has a storage pocket in the back for storing the pieces. There are 34 write-on/wipe-off player pieces, 2 write-on/wipe-off pitcher pieces and a game guide. Divide your group into 2 teams. One person on each team is the pitcher. Every member of each team receives a player piece and writes their name on on the label area. Use the spinner to choose which team will be up to bat first. Have the pitcher for each team spin the spinner once each and the one who spins the biggest hit goes first. Have the teams sit in their own groups. Place the pitcher in the pocket for the pitcher and let the game begin.
Begin play by having the first player step up to bat. The pitcher from the opposing team asks the question. You can use spelling words, math facts, science or social studies, questions, or even Bible memory verses. The batter is then given the opportunity to answer. If they answer correct he/she spins the spinner and places her player in the appropriate pocket on the board. Should the player answer incorrectly, they receive an out and return to their seat. The next player steps up and takes his/her turn. When they score each player on the board is moved forward the same amount of bases. The teacher or scorekeeper records runs and outs on the scoreboard. When a team has earned three outs, the teams change sides. The team with the most runs at the end of the selected amount of innings is the winner.
Batter Up could be used in a school, home-school, or Sunday school setting. It would be great for studying and preparing for quizzes and tests. Batter Up could be used by varying ages.
Remember school is fast approaching and this would make a great addition to a classroom or home-school. Educational Insights is the perfect place to shop for educational games!
