CNN News Challenge

CNN Challenge is a news game based upon the leading news stories of the week. 

You first pick a CNN host to moderate your game. Then a series of multiple choice questions based on the news is given. There are 3 rounds in each game and your score is based not only upon answering correctly but also how quickly you answer each question. The longer you take to answer a question, the fewer points you earn. The questions get progressively more difficult as you progress through the rounds.  At the end of each game, a set of links to the stories the questions were based on is given.  

The videos and images are great in this interactive game. This game would be fabulous to use on a weekly basis as a way to review of recent news. Students could play the game and then search for the answers to the questions they got wrong by using the links provided by CNN.
