I put the categories on the board and five to ten dollar amounts under each category ranging from 100 to 500 or 1000 depending on the level of the class and the time available. The categories can be verb tenses, noun plurals, opposites, homonyms, spellin g, geography, math - whatever is applicable for the level of students. Divide the students into two or more teams and continue by allowing the team to choose a category and dollar amount. If they answer the question (as a team or individually for the te am), the team receives the dollar amount. If they do not answer the question correctly, the other team gets the opportunity to answer it. We play until there are no more questions and the team with the most money wins the game. My students love it!
Let me know if this works for you or if you come up with any new twists!
