How to Play the Game Zip, Zap, Zop in your Classroom

When we first starting Zooming, figuring out how to lead class meetings that were fun was my top priority. At that time, I didn’t realize how much teachers everywhere would be looking for solutions for the same thing. As online and hybrid teaching models took over the school year, being equip with as many games, activities and ideas for keeping Zoom (or Google Meet) meetings engaging has become an absolute necessity.

Zip, Zop, Zap is a game I created to have some fun while practicing any skill or strategy. At the end of the school year, I paired it with a bunch of random review questions for math and ELA. Some teachers use it with math questions. You could use spelling words or comprehension questions after a story. Or–you could just use it for fun with no questions attached! It would make for a great morning meeting or Fun Friday activity.
