What other Teachers are saying about the ReviewGameZone.com:
"I wanted to let you know that my kids love this site! I have always used other sites in the past. I was so thrilled to discover teachers were able to make their own games for free. Thank you! My kids actually play at home when they get bored. That is awesome when they could be playing any computer based game." ~ S. O.
"I have been able to log on and make numerous review quizzes for my classes. We are a Classrooms For the Future school and incorporate tons of technology. This is just another way to do it. This type of review allows students to study independently and it frees us up to help with other issues and schoolwork. Thanks for your FREE website." ~ M.R.
"These games are like Jeopardy review games that you make from templates in PowerPoint, the main difference is that it is so much easier. The website makes the games for you without having to code it in PowerPoint and the students still get the Jeopardy like review in the classroom. I love this site and am so glad I found it! Thank you!" ~ P.D.

|Effectiveness: As with anything, the students that want to study will, however, students who would typically not open their books to review for exams, are now parking themselves in front of the computer and playing a few free review games the night before the exams. We understand that this site is not meant to replace good old "studying" but teachers have seen a dramatic increase in student study habits by using this site.|
Question Preview: Each game has a "Preview Questions" option where students or teachers can preview the questions before or after playing them. You are able to print the questions found within the data sets to allow for more in depth review.
School Districts Firewall and Website Blocking: A small hand full of schools may automatically block access to this site because it contains the keyword "games", even if they are educational. If this happens at your school, contact your system administration and request a manual review of this site. Most districts unblock the site once they realize this is a site dedicated to education.
How to Use the Site: A few days prior to the exam I usually create my test for the class. Then I log onto the free review game creation site (reviewgamezone.com) and browse the topics. I jot down each topic ID # which is located next to the game title (e.g.: Sedimentary Rocks (ID#: 4)) that is relevant for the particular exam on this study sheet, then print it out, make copies, and give it to my students as a way to prepare for exams.

Unique ID #: Each question set has an ID # which allows students fast access to a particular test or quiz without having to “dig” or “search” through the site. An example: [Sedimentary Rocks (ID#: 4)]: Here you can see that the ID for this question set is 4. If you think this question set would benefit your students, simply tell them to plug the number 4 into the “Games by ID #” box located in the upper right hand corner of each page. Once you find a question set, you can find it any time by entering its ID # in the upper right hand text box of any page. This will bring you right to the same question set.
Teacher Name: This feature allows your students to input your name into a search box and all of the questions or quizzes that you created will be displayed on one page for easy access. This is a time saver and allows almost instant access to all your review questions! In order to use this feature, you must log in to your account and complete your user profile. Failure to complete your profile will prevent your students from using this feature!
