Enjoy Interactive Fun With “Deal Or No-Deal”
This is a very popular game that students of all ages around the world are sure to recognize and enjoy. You will be the host of the game, and you will guide your students through the process by having them select a case and attempt to answer the questions that are revealed.

Otherwise, your students will remember which case holds the grand prize! You may be happy to know that you will not have to contend with the usual “mean-spirited banker”, so your game can stay pleasant and upbeat.
