The free downloadable review game in a previous post - Animal Rescue – was a printable PDF.
But Catherine and I realized that there are many of you with large groups who might appreciate the game in a PowerPoint presentation. So here it is!
It is in a zipped file and when you extract it you will find a folder with not one but two PowerPoint files ( as well as full instructions for how to play the game). For the game to work flawlessly you need to keep the two files in the same folder on your computer.
As always, if you hit any snags, or want to ask a question or make a comment on the game, use the comment form below, or email us. Check out our contact page for the address).
Right-click to download and then save the file to your computer.

Just like the 8-pin bowling game we featured in an earlier blog post, this game is played with 8 pieces per team and two dice.
If a team answered your review question correctly they throw the two dice. The numbers they throw determine which of their animals are “rescued” and come off the board.
Several of the animals pictured are endangered species. Others are pets which are sometimes mistreated. The game gives opportunity to talk about such issues as pet care and wild life.
If you download this you will find full instructions and printable animal pictures in a PDF. All you need to do is laminate the pieces, add your own review questions and supply two dice.
UPDATE!! We are working on a PowerPoint version which should be ready in a day or two.
