3.13.16 – 5th Sunday of Lent

Yooo. So song-a-thon didn’t happen last week, boo. But that means we’re doing it this week! Yay! And sorry i didn’t send this out yesterday–i had it all written last week but I got excited about designing id badges for camp and forgot to update this to send out….

  • 8:00 – morning prayer – Tr. KP
    • announcements
      • turn in your camp forms! camp is in a few weeks! camp will be extra super fun!
  • 8:10 ish – Jeopardy Game Day
    • so to make things fair, i briefly looked into the gameplay used in the TV version we know and love with Alex Trebek, and we’ll just follow those rules (adapted for AN)
    • we’ll need to clear a classroom for them to sit on the floor as teams
    • first we’ll split into three teams and decide who goes first by rock paper scissors. the teams will either just be named Squirtle, Charmander, and Bulbasaur to save time on team names and avoid ranking them by 1, 2, 3. Also, pokemon are cool (and please, someone write down who’s on what team)
    • the winning team will go first by choosing a category and point value. After HT reads the question (answering in the form of a question won’t work with AN), any of the three teams may buzz in to answer. They will buzz in by having all team members holding hands and raising them together. Also, the whole team has to be seated. If they don’t get it right or fail to answer in five seconds, the question is up for grabs again.
      • we won’t be doing negative points for AN because i don’t think we want to deal with any adverse effects (AN can get really competitive)
    • after that question is completed, the team that gave the last correct answer gets to choose another category and point value. The game continues in the same manner until the end
    • and straight from wikipedia:
      • A “Daily Double” is hidden behind one clue in the Jeopardy! round, and behind two in Double Jeopardy!j;[4] the name and inspiration were taken from a horse racingterm.[11] Only the contestant who uncovers a Daily Double may respond to that clue. Before the clue is revealed, the contestant must decide how much of their current score to wager, from a minimum of $5 to a maximum of their entire score (known as a “true Daily Double”) or the highest clue value available in the round, whichever is greater.[8] Whether or not the contestant responds correctly, he or she maintains control of the board.
  • 8:50 or 9:00 ish – bathroom break!
  • 9:00 ish – Song a thon!
  • if, somehow, the activities end early or (possibly more likely) they seem too bored (or too worn out from a brain competition) to continue, we’ll use our Gospel workbooks to fill time (if this happens, sorry in advance for our hard work not getting used to full potential, but at least we saved all the questions and gameplay guidelines for future use!)
  • 9:40 – wrap up – Tr. KP
    • forever reminding AN about camp
  • 9:50 – seated and ready for Mass (we got in trouble for being late last week….)

Shine on!
