Link PTA 2018 Cultural Arts Programs

 

September 14

Brain Wash Game Show (K-5)

Brain Wash Game Show combines school curriculum with pop culture trivia to create a one-of-a-kind, multimedia game show. Students compete on their grade level in 5-7 minutes rounds. The last 5 minutes is saved for a teacher round (kids freak out on this!). Everyone in the audience plays along like you would while watching game shows on TV. This exposes students in other grades to material they have learned, just learned, or will learn in the future.
