During this lesson students have to answer questions about the state constitution and a historical overview from 1848 onwards. The spinner decides the question and the colour. For every question a student answers right, they get a “chip”. The first to collect all the different “chips” is the winner.

Since the spinner decides the colour, It can happen that a student already has a chip of a certain colour and still has to answer the question, without gaining another “chip”.

This lesson can be done in pairs, by using the option ’share screen’, but it also works with the entire class. Think about variants like: “boys against girls”.
