The Flip tiles template allows you to create two-sided tiles. Either side can show text, images or both.
The template is similar to simple tiles except that content can be placed on both sides.
Enter the content as two column list. Each pair of entries represents a single tile. On the left, is the text or image to display on the front of the tiles. On the right, is the text or image to display on the back of the tiles.
Normally, the tiles will appear in the order you enter them (going left to right in rows). However you can opt to randomize their order in the options. The options also allow you to alter the grid layout.
In the turn over game, all the tiles have their front face showing at the start.
Tap a tile to zoom into it, tap the tile again or tap the background to zoom out.
Swipe a tile to flip it over, showing the back of the tile.
An additional control is introduced to eliminate tiles. By holding down, you can eliminate an tile - causing it to disappear from play.
The in-game menu has the additional command to restore the eliminated tiles. This brings any eliminated tiles back into play.
This template can be used to support a simple question and answer format. Put the question on the front and the answer on the back.
However once you've quizzed the class in this way, try flip all the tiles over and shuffle them up for good measure. Now with the answers showing, quiz the class to remind you of the question what gave it. For extra credit, have them pose a different question to the one posed that still have the same answer.
Now ask all the students to guess which they think are the top five values and note these down. Once the time limit is up, have a few different students reveal their answers and then flip over the tiles as they read them out. The winning student is the one who comes closest to picking the top five. A quick variation on this is to switch it around and then do the bottom five.
A variation might be to ask every one to first note down which they think are true. The get a quick show of hands to find out how things there are 4 trues, who thinks there are 5 trues and so on. Once you hit on the group of people who have found the right number, pick one of them to go through their list seeing if they got it right. The advantage of this method is it requires everyone in the audience to first work out the answer for themselves.
Now present the activity. The students will be given the task to try to make it so that only metals are showing. Go through each student in turn and ask them which tile they want to flip to bring it closer to completion. They will try to flip the tile only if the wrong answer is showing - but they may accidentally make it worse by flipping over a right answer. Once you get to the point where no student wants to flip and more tiles - reveal to them how they did.
