Physics and Astronomy

Out of This World
Introduction To exercise your knowledge of astronomy.

1. Divide the class in half and make two teams A and B. Each team will have 100 points in the beginning.

2. Each member of team A thinks of an answer to a possible question concerning astronomy. One member of team A will repeat his answer twice. Team B has 30 seconds to formulate an appropriate question for the answer.

3. If team B can devise an acceptable question for the answer, Team A loses 2 points. If team B cannot, it loses 2 points. Each member on team A should have one turn to give answers before team B's opportunity to give answers.

4. When one team has a score of zero the game has ended.


The team with points left is the winner.
