It’s Time to Climb!
Nearpod is all about creating engaging and rigorous student experiences. Seeing the rise of games in the classroom, we decided to put on our thinking caps and consult with experts (yes, including students, too!) to create the most engaging gamified quiz out there and make it available to you – for free!
Time to Climb is a highly interactive gamified activity within the Nearpod #StudentEngagement Platform. Students race to the top of the mountain against the clock by answering multiple choice questions. Time to Climb activities are great for bell ringers, learning checks, exit tickets and more. Plus, because it’s built within the Nearpod platform, it seamlessly integrates with the rest of your lesson (after all, we hate multi-tab teaching just as much as you do).
