How to Use Powerpoint Matching Games with Students

This article will help you see how to play the Powerpoint Matching Games in my Teacher’s Pay Teachers Store with your students.  These games are great for either distance learning or in-person classes.  I personally use them in my online classes with my students.

First and most important:  You MUST be in PRESENTATION mode for these to work!  You also must use these in Powerpoint.  The animations will NOT convert to Google Slides or Keynote.

The biggest issue I have found is when my students click off of the boxes (on the background).  That will cause the slide to advance, so you will need to go back to the previous slide (I usually hit the back arrow key).

Here is a video that shows the game on screen.  Let me know if you have any questions, I hope you enjoy using these with your students.
