Science Games for High School

Learning science can be a lot of fun when you add some enrichment games like these!

Pass The Chicken

This game requires a rubber chicken, although you can substitute a ball, atom model or anything else you have in your classroom that students can easily pass. Have your students sit in a circle and choose one student to be “It.” Once you say “Go,” ask “It” to name five natural elements, the process of photosynthesis or five elements on the periodic table. While “It” answers, the other students pass the chicken around the circle. When “It” finishes the question, the student holding the prop will be “It.” If the prop has made its way back to the original student before she finishes, she will have to answer a new question.

Check out other games here like Science Bingo or “True or False”.
