Oops. Actually don't do that. I forgot they have another animation on them too they might cause problems. You'd have to delete that animation which you can do from the animation panel. Or copy a box from Let's Try What Time! and edit it and add numbers.

Good idea letting 'no' be an option. That way shy kids aren't put too on the spot. As for the fade away animation. Copy one of the number boxes from my ABC and abc Window Game. They have the fade away animation already. Then just resize them and copy and paste as many as you need. You can move animated objects from one presentation to another and the trigger will still work.

I agree with having both teachers as people that can receive the items. The points would just need to be changed so the first student at the ALT receives 5 points, and the first student to the JTE also receives 5 points. The only problem is that since the team members sitting down need to repeat the with "That is a ________," it might get noisy. If you can't hear the teams talking, then you should only have one teacher be a checkpoint.

Thanks. When a friend showed me how to use the objects list menu and rename objects it really opened doors for building and editing powerpoints.

I'm commenting on this so it shows up on the front page because I think everyone should read through this. I never realized the invisibility option with objects. To think this whole time I've been repeatedly hitting "send to back" "bring forward" over and over again...Thanks for the tips!
